If you want a restraining order in California, there is a list of reasons that you can use in order to convince the court that the restraining order is necessary. One of the main reasons that people can obtain a restraining order in the state of California is because of a
domestic violence allegation. If you have been harmed by a partner or spouse, then you have the right to seek a restraining order against that person. You can also use a threat of domestic violence as a legitimate reason to get the courts involved. If you are threatened or you believe that your children are at risk, then you can contact a family attorney at Claery & Green and seek an order at a local courthouse. You can also obtain restraining orders against abusive parents, aunts and uncles, or any other relative that becomes a threat to your safety.
Another reason that you can file for a restraining order is in a civil harassment situation. Typically, civil harassment filings involve a person who is stalking another individual. Whether you are being constantly harassed over the phone or are being physically followed, if you are uncomfortable you should express this to a family lawyer and obtain a restraining order by attending the necessary court hearing. You can also obtain a restraining order if you have been injured or threatened at work. As well, if you have received threatening phone calls at work then you can ask for a workplace protection order so that you will not feel uncomfortable when at your place of employment. As well, those that are mentally or physically disabled may be able to obtain an adult protective order if they are in a position where they have been threatened or will possibly be harmed.
