Restraining orders exist to help protect victims of domestic violence from further abuse. In addition to the restrictions on where a person with a restraining can be, the ban on ownership or possession of firearms, and certain types of communication California law provides further repercussions such as presumption that sole or joint legal custody of children to the perpetrator is not in the children’s best interest, a presumption not easily overcome. The law also provides that a domestic violence perpetrator is not likely to be the recipient of spousal support. If you are the victim of domestic violence contact us now for a free consultation.
Domestic Violence Restraining Orders are useful tools in the fight against spousal abuse; however, given the harsh, long lasting, and one sided repercussions of a restraining order there is the potential for abuse which, unfortunately, is seen regularly in our courts. False allegations of domestic violence made for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage in a court proceeding is its own form of abuse. If you are the victim of false allegations contact us now for a free consultation to help defend you.
