Protect Orders and Restraining Orders in Orange County

If you are facing a charge of violating a restraining order in Orange County or need to obtain a restraining order against someone, or want to defend yourself against a restraining order filed against you, call us today for a free consultation.

A protective order is an order preventing you from having any contact with a particular person and/or a particular place.   These are commonly called “no contact” orders and are routinely filed against the defendant in a criminal case like a domestic violence case.

A no contact order means that the restrained person can have no contact with the victim at all, even by way of a third party, except through the Defendant's attorney of record.   A violation of a no contact order is a crime that can land you in jail and complicate matters tremendously.  

A restraining order is civil matter and does not depend on the existence of a criminal case although they can also accompany criminal cases.   The person seeking the order must show by clear and convincing evidence that the person who is being restrained has threatened them or harassed them sufficiently to deserve a restraining order.  

Obtaining or defending a civil restraining order is a civil action that requires court appearances, and the presentation of evidence to the judge in a court hearing.   If the restraining order is granted, the result is an order that stays in effect for 3 years whereby the Respondent cannot have any contact (no telephone, no mail) with the person who successfully sought the order.  

If any protective Order is granted then the court directs the State to add this fact in their computer database.   Which means any contact with law enforcement, and a routine search of that database will reveal the existence of the protective order.   Violation of the order is a crime.

Don’t attempt to handle these types of matter yourself, call an experienced attorney to assist you.   We’re waiting by the phone to hear from you now.
