A restraining order is an order of the court providing protection to someone who has either been threatened or physically harmed by another person. Restraining orders serve the purpose of preventing further abuse, harm, or threats by ordering an abuser or harasser to stay away and cease all contact with a victim.
Placing a Restraining Order
Restraining orders are commonly implemented in situations of domestic violence in order to protect a victim from suffering any further. Restraining orders issued in these situations may direct an abuser to stay away from the victim’s home, school, place of employment, or any other place they frequently visit. A judge will sign the restraining order (sometimes called an order of protection), legally requiring the abuser to obey the law.
If the abuser violates the restraining order in any way, they may be arrested and will be subject to criminal penalties. If you are the victim of abuse or violence or if threats have been made against you placing you in fear of immediate harm, you should speak with Valencia criminal defense attorney David. D. Diamond about the possibility of a restraining order.
