Civil Harassment Restraining Order

Those who are victimized by a family member or someone else in the household have specialized protection under the domestic violence restraining order, but those who are victimized by someone of another relationship are entitled to relief as well under the civil harassment restraining order. This pertains to co-workers, friends, or neighbors – anyone who has prolonged contact with the victim.

If someone is harassed by another individual in their daily life, this restraining order can be filed against the attacker, as long as one or more of the following have occurred:

  • Unlawful violence
  • A substantial threat of violence
  • A purposeful series of actions aimed at a specific person that has no other legitimate reason for existing other than to annoy, harass, or alarm said person. This rule is added to account for harassing emails, phone calls, and text messages. This shows that physical violence or the threat of it are the not the only means by which an individual can be harassed.

Our restraining order attorneys in Los Angeles are incredibly familiar with the California Code of Civil Procedure § 527.6., which indicates a number of requirements for a legitimate harassment charge. For instance, the alleged series of actions must be deemed to have caused a “reasonable person” substantial distress. These measures are difficult to prove in court.

If you’ve been charged with harassment, our attorneys can help you fight these allegations in court. We do so by challenging that the victim has indeed suffered substantial distress and by also arguing that the individual may be individually more susceptible to such distress, but that such treatment would affect a reasonable in the same manner. We have the experience and the courtroom skill needed.

Call our offices today at (888) 860-6570 to refute these allegations and maintain your reputation.
