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.
