VENTURA RESTRAINING ORDER ATTORNEYS
If you have been served with a restraining order hearing or if a temporary protective order has been issued against you, it is important that you contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Do not ignore the notice! A restraining order is an order that is issued by a court that forbids the man or woman served with the restraining order from making any contact with the person who filed for the restraining order. Once a restraining order has been filed in court, the person who was served with the restraining order must stop any and all forms of contact and communication. If the person does not stop contacting the person who filed for the restraining order, the person can be charged with violation of a restraining order and may face jail time.
