      Know and Protect Your Rights in a Criminal Defense Matter

          Concord Restraining Order Lawyers

          Restraining orders, also referred to as protective orders, are legal documents that prohibit certain forms of contact between two parties. Restraining orders are used to protect an individual from another person or a group of people. However, the primary goal of a restraining order should never be to receive compensation or money from another person or to constructively evict them from a home. There are other legal remedies an individual may pursue if they are looking to receive monetary compensation from another or to evict them.

          Types of Restraining Orders in California

          Most people who contact our office for a restraining order don’t realize that there are actually four different types of restraining orders they can file in Concord and throughout the state of California. You can file or be served with a Civil Harassment Restraining Order (CHRO), a Domestic Violence Restraining Order (DVRO), an Elder Abuse Restraining Order (EARO), or a Workplace Violence Restraining Order (WVRO). If you are unsure what type of restraining order to file in your case, you should contact a Concord restraining order lawyer. They could help you determine which restraining order is best suited for you based on your goals.

          Civil Harassment Restraining Order

          One of the most common types of restraining orders that we see in our office are civil harassment restraining orders which are used to protect a person from violence, threats of violence, or harassment from another person with whom they do not have a close intimate relationship with. Some examples of parties involved in civil harassment restraining orders include neighbors, roommates, coworkers, strangers, or friends.

          Domestic Violence Restraining Order

          Another common retraining order type that we encounter are domestic violence restraining ordes. This type of restraining order is used to protect a person from abuse from a current or former intimate partner such as a spouse, parent, sibling, romantic partner, or parent of a child in common. Some behaviors that constitute abuse against an intimate partner include causing or attempting to cause serious injury, sexual assault or related sexual battery, causing fear of injury, disturbing the peace, or engaging in stalking/harrasment. If you are subject to abuse by an intimate partner, this is the restraining order that would be relevant to your situation.

          Elder Abuse Restraining Order

          An elder abuse restraining order is reserved for individuals over the age of 65 or dependent adults who are between the ages of 18-65 and suffer from physical or mental limitations that prohibit them from carrying out daily activities. These are usually filed to prohibit a person from taking advantage of an elder or dependent adult. The restraining order lawyers at our firm have not only filed petitions to protect elders or dependent adults from being abused but have also defended against false allegations of abuse made against our clients. These allegations are often filed by the opposing party with the intent of gaining some type of leverage in financial, property, or asset disputes involving an elder and the family that wants access to said assets.

          Workplace Violence Restraining Order

          This type of restraining order is for employers who are seeking to protect their employees from some form of harassment or violence that is or may take place at the workplace based on some course of conduct or credible threat of violence at the workplace. It is important to note that these can only be filed by employers who are looking to protect their employees, and cannot be filed by employees themselves. An employee who wants to file for protection against another employee (coworker) would typically file a civil harassment restraining order unless there was an intimate relationship shared between the two.
