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
