Pasadena Order of Protection Lawyer
We Can Help You Petition for a Restraining Order
Divorces can be extremely volatile and sometimes result in a spouse's
threatening behavior, destruction of property or even physical violence.
You are protected by law from any form of
domestic violence, including harassment, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, stalking, threats
of violence and physical injury.
Pasadena family lawyer should be contacted immediately to help secure an Order of Protection
if you are the victim of domestic violence. A protection order will prohibit
a spouse from having any further contact with you. If the spouse is living
in your home, he or she will be required to move out and stay at least
100 feet away for you and any children that may be involved.

An Order of Protection, commonly referred to as a restraining order, is
used in domestic violence cases to immediately stop sexual or emotional
abuse, and physical abuse such as:
- Hair pulling
- Holding the person down
When a petition is submitted for an Order of Protection, an emergency hearing
is held to determine whether or not the order should be issued. If the
judge approves the petition, a second hearing is held approximately three
weeks later to decide if the order will be permanent.
