Emergency Protective Orders

Los Angeles Domestic Violence Attorney

According to the 2010 California Family Code, Section 6250, if there is reasonable cause to believe that a family is in immediate danger due to situations that include and pertain to domestic violence, steps can be taken to help protect and defend their legal rights. This includes issuing an ex parte emergency protective order. This order is valid so long as it is administered by a judicial officer who has solid reasoning and cause behind the issue.

What does an emergency protective order do?

In this order, a child could be given temporary custody and care by an adult outlined within the article if the child is in danger of abuse or abduction. Typically, an emergency protective order will last for about a week, however, parties who are seeking more permanent protection are eligible to seek a more permanent order. Also, it should be noticed that just because a person has moved out from a household in an attempt to escape the abuse does not mean that they are not eligible to seek protection under an emergency protective order.
