    • A stay-away order requiring a person to stay away from home, school, etc.
    • An order to maintain a certain distance from the protected person
    • An order not to call (work or home), email, text message, or otherwise contact a person

  • Are restraining orders in Los Angeles ever denied?

    The court may deny a restraining order for several reasons. The applicant may fail to state an adequate reason for the order or not meet the relationship requirements for the type of order at issue. California has several types of restraining orders, so you need to be sure you apply for the one that fits your circumstances. The team at Stolar Law Group is happy to discuss the restraining order that best fits your needs and ensure that you meet all of its requirements.

  • Do I need a lawyer to file a restraining order in California?

    California law does not require you to hire a lawyer to file a restraining order or to defend against one, but the court system recommends one. You may find that you want an attorney by your side for many reasons. You will face several legal hurdles you must clear, including proper filing, collecting evidence, and attending a court hearing. A lawyer will help you present your case in the best light and can advise you regarding the legal effects the order may have on other areas of your life, such as divorce proceedings.

  • How can I get a restraining order in Los Angeles?

    There are a few different ways to get a restraining order in Los Angeles County depending on the situation. The police can request an emergency protective order at the scene of a domestic violence call, which will go into effect immediately. Otherwise, you can go to the court yourself to request a temporary restraining order, which will take effect until a full hearing, usually in about three to four weeks. The court will decide at the hearing whether to issue a longer-term Restraining Order After Hearing.
