​Restraining ​Order ​Attorney

​Getting a restraining order granted or trying to defend against a restraining order can be a daunting task.  Trying to figure out the lengthy paperwork and deciding what courtroom you should be in is very confusing and could leave you feeling frustrated to the point of giving up.  We are here to help you.

​Protect Your Rights

​The attorneys at the Law Offices of Krause & Hirschhorn, P.C. successfully represent both men and women in either filing a restraining order or in the defense of one being filed.  When a restraining order is granted in California, the protected person walks away with specific protections that are enforced by local law enforcement, the district attorney and the court.  The person being restrained will have significant rights stripped away that may include no contact, no harassment and stay away orders from persons and places.  A violation of a restraining order is a crime and can result in prosecution for misdemeanor or felony offenses.  Let us inform you of your rights and help advise you of the steps needed to protect yourself.


​Whether You Are Filing a Restraining Order or Need to Defend One, We Can Help

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Krause & Hirschhorn, P.C. are here to help you answer the question of either how to file a restraining order or how to get a restraining order granted. Because of our knowledge of California restraining order laws, and our experience in both ​filing and defending against restraining orders, we are uniquely capable of protecting your rights.

​In California, there are many types of restraining orders​. We can help determine which type of restraining order to file in your case or which type of order you must defend against.  It is extremely important to make sure that the proper restraining order is used as they all have different requirements, different rules of where they must be filed, and have different possible orders the judge can make.  For example:

1.    Civil Harassment Orders under CCP§ 527.6 are for harassment where the parties have no relationship.
2.    Domestic Violence Restraining Orders under Family Code §6200 are for people with a familiar relationship​.
    3.    Workplace Violence Restraining Orders under CCP 527.8 are for employees.
4.    Elder Abuse Restraining Orders under W & I code 15657.03 are for elder adults or dependent adults.
5.    Juvenile Dependency and Delinquency Restraining Orders under W& I §213.5 are for parents, children, guardians, social workers, probation officers, or others with interest or relationship to a child.
Let us take the confusion out of the process.
