Marin Restraining Orders in California Attorneys

We know how to deal with DVRO and other domestic violence issues

Restraining orders can be an effective way to keep you and your family safe in cases where a partner, former partner or third party is creating an unsafe environment and you want to ensure there is a safe distance between this person and your loved ones.

This area of law can be difficult, however, especially if you are seeking to obtain a restraining order on your own. Do you know exactly what you should ask for in an emergency protective order? Do you know how long a temporary restraining order will be enforceable?

At Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, our Marin, California-based restraining order attorneys are committed to taking care of our clients and their children, and preventing domestic violence. If you need a restraining order (DVRO), we will take the time to analyze your unique situation and present a clear and compelling argument to the judge supporting your request. We can explain what protection domestic law provides.

Call 415-789-5881 or contact us online to find out how we can help with your protective order.

Do not wait to take action if you or your child is at risk of domestic violence, including:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Verbal abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Harassment
  • Stalking

What Can a Temporary Restraining Order Include?

A judge has broad discretion as to the terms of a domestic protective order, which may include a variety of requirements such as, but not limited to, the following:

  • A criminal protective order can specify ?no contact?
  • An order to refrain from use of drugs or alcohol
  • A stay-away order requiring a person to stay away from a home, school, etc.
  • An order to maintain a certain distance from the protected person
  • An order not to call (work or home), e-mail, text message, or otherwise contact a person
  • A ?good will? order preventing a parent from damaging a child?s relationship with the other
  • A civil harassment order can order a neighbor, roommate, or co-worker to stop harassment

Has a Restraining Order Been Issued Against You?

If a restraining order has been filed against you, it is important to consult with an attorney immediately in order to protect your relationship with your child and assess the potential impact on your civil or criminal record. Depending on the type of restraining order, it may be entered on the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS) and allow statewide or national access.

The Pitfalls of Do-It-Yourself Restraining Orders

There are dangerous pitfalls to a do-it-yourself restraining order. If you need, or your child needs, protection from domestic violence, you cannot afford to make a mistake. You need to ask the court for an emergency protective order or a temporary restraining order that offers the necessary protection for the appropriate length of time.

When it comes to restraining orders, you need two things above all else:

  • A restraining order that the court will enforce
  • The answers to your questions as quickly as possible

The experienced family law attorneys at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, provide the expertise you need to get the answers you want in a timely fashion. If you require assistance with obtaining or challenging a restraining order, we will develop a solution that is tailored to your unique needs. Call 415-789-5881 or contact us online to schedule an initial consultation.

Update: Case Closed! I just want to say thank you to the whole Kasper and Lugay Team! Brent got The “W” in my case. They worked hard on my child custody battle and were super flexible with my payments! Anyone that’s going through a separation knows the stress courts can bring, but Brent and his team made sure to make everything fast and easy as possible for me! Thank You Again! I hope I never have to go through something like this again but if I ever do I know who to call!

I hired Brent Kaspar & his team to assist me in the dissolution of marriage from my wife of 9+ years and love for 14+ years. This is obviously not any type of experience anyone want to go through, however I wanted the best direct & logical approach as the emotional & financial sides of this transition are difficult enough. Brent impressed me immediately with his knowledge of the process as well as his experience with every local attorney, mediator, judge, and whomever else I may be faced with addressing.... I would want him on my side.

My case was not simple or easy. After 5 years, my ex-husband, decided to try and terminate all alimony on a 26 year marriage, as well as obtain funds from me....The process with Brent Kaspar and this entire group was very thorough as well as methodical to achieve the end goal. Although there is always a high amount of stress when dealing with any legal matter, these individuals as are excellent at their jobs, relentless on getting information, light hearted when need be, and strong willed when dealing with others legal nonsense. We were able to settle prior to court and obtain/protect what I intended.
