Domestic violence is always an emotional and difficult issue. If you are currently being abused or are being threatened by a spouse, ex-spouse or family member, please seek the appropriate help immediately. No one should be living in fear of being abused.
At Wallin & Klarich, we have family law attorneys who can help you obtain a domestic violence restraining order from the court. We can protect your rights and are always concerned about our client’s well-being.
Under the California Family Code Section 6203, the definition of “Abuse” includes any of the following:
- Intentionally or recklessly causing or attempting to cause bodily injury; or
- Sexual assault; or
- Placing a person in a “reasonable apprehension” of imminent serious bodily injury to that person or another.
Again, if you are a victim of domestic violence and are currently being abused or threatened with violence, please seek our help now.
When you are asking the court for a restraining order, you are called the “protected person.” The person whom you are trying to obtain the restraining order against is called the “restrained person.”
The court can order a restrained person to:
- Not contact or go near you, your children, other relatives, or others who live with you
- Not to have a gun or ammunition;
- To move out of your house;
- To obey child custody and visitation orders;
- Pay child and/or spousal support; and
- Obey orders about property.
Lastly, it is important to note: a violation of a restraining order is a crime and the restrained person may face arrest and criminal prosecution. If you are in an abusive relationship, it is essential to get the appropriate assistance. At Wallin & Klarich, we provide our clients with the best family law services.
