Domestic violence and child abuse are serious matters that require immediate legal attention. If you are a victim of domestic violence or if you have a child that has been abused, we strongly advise you to quickly utilize one of the many precautions that have been put into place to ensure that you and your family are properly protected. It is very important to note that most restraining orders do not take effect right away. If you are in trouble and feel unsafe where you are, contact law enforcement immediately.

If your situation does not require immediate attention, for your safety, the state of California offers four types of restraining orders that can guarantee that your abuser will not be able to come into contact with you or your family. See which restraining order best fits your situation and displace your fears by filing for a document that threatens your abuser with jail time or other serious legal consequences if they do not comply.
