Types of Protective Orders in California

Under California law, there are four distinct types of restraining orders that may be issued by the court to offer protection to an at-risk individual:

  • Domestic violence restraining orders – used to protect victims who have suffered physical or emotional abuse at the hands of a spouse, divorced spouse, former romantic partner, parent, child, or member of the same household.
  • Elder or dependent abuse restraining orders – used to protect victims over age 65 or adults with special needs from continued physical or financial abuse, neglect, or deprivation of care.
  • Civil harassment restraining orders – used to protect victims of stalking, threatening behavior, harassment, or physical abuse by an abuser not close enough to qualify as a domestic violence situation.
  • Workplace violence restraining orders – obtained by employers to protect an employee who has been harassed, threatened, or abused in the workplace.

Bay Area Attorneys Helping to Protect You

When a protective order is issued by the court, it may contain a number of provisions designed to prevent future abuse or harassment from occurring. A restraining order may prohibit the subject from contacting or approaching the named "protected person" or persons, and place restrictions on his or her rights and activities. In some cases, a restraining order may even affect the subject's right to visitation with his or her children.

The consequences of a violating a restraining order can be very serious and may include fines and jail time. At the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich, we can provide the assistance you need in both securing and enforcing a restraining order against your abuser.
