What is a Restraining Order?  Is it worth seeking or Defending?
These are the two most common questions our law office hears on a weekly basis.
A restraining order, also known as protective order, is a court order in which the judge issues against an offending party in order to protect a person a person being from continued harassment, stalking, physical violence, and other forms of severe annoyance.   We are often asked, “Can’t I just call the police.”  If you believe you have been harmed or are in danger of being harmed you absolutely can call the police or 911.  However, given the current climate in our criminal justice system, often prosecutors and police do not have the resources to pursue and prosecute every case.  What this means for you is that you may need to be proactive in protecting yourself.  Sacramento protective orders and restraining orders provide you with a tool to do just that.
