Restraining Orders

San Diego Restraining Order Attorney

There are a variety of circumstances related to California family law where a person may seek a temporary, renewed, or permanent restraining order against another, or where someone against whom a restraining order is either sought or is in place might seek to avoid or lift that restraining order. For example, a court may issue restraining orders in any of the circumstances listed below. A San Diego Restraining Order Attorney would be able to help:

  • Where one party is seeking to remove a child from the state
  • Where one party has committed or is threatening to commit domestic violence against a spouse, family member, housemate or other person
  • Where one party is not following the requirements of a divorce order, e.g. not paying child support or not observing visitation or custody limitations set by the court

At the Law Offices of Andy Cook in San Diego, we help people through the process of either seeking or avoiding a current or future restraining order while ensuring that the rights and interests of the parties and those of their children are preserved and protected now and into the future.

Renewal of Restraining Orders and Permanent Restraining Orders in CA

After a temporary restraining order is issued by a California court, the court may set a time for a court hearing at which the court can hear evidence from both parties and determine whether or not to renew the temporary restraining order and/or convert it into a permanent restraining order. As part of this process, the court may also issue orders relating to child custody and visitation and child support payments, and the effects of the court’s decision in the hearing may have a significant impact on the rights and responsibilities of the parties involved and their children for many years to come. Both parties are strongly advised to be well prepared for this hearing and to make sure that their interests and those of their children are represented before the judge who will make the decisions regarding the renewed and/or permanent orders. As with temporary restraining orders, failure to comply with a renewed and/or permanent restraining order can bring about severe civil and criminal consequences
