Domestic Violence Lawyers Here to Help You

Domestic violence can be a difficult issue to confront on your own, but with the help of a qualified legal professional, you can get the protection you need.

Our Oceanside domestic violence lawyers at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP understand how challenging it is to deal with domestic violence and abuse, and as such, do what we can to get those in this situation the help and protection they need.

Call (760) 722-7646 right away if you are seeking protection from domestic violence.

Any relationship will inevitably encounter its ups and downs. However, in far too many cases, arguments and disputes between couples can turn violent, or one partner may have dangerously aggressive tendencies that threaten the safety of others.

Regardless of the cause, domestic violence is a serious issue that cannot and should not be treated lightly.

In fact, it is often necessary for partners in abusive relationships to seek a restraining order or other legal action in order to protect themselves and their children from further harm.

How to Stop Harassment: The Types of Protective Orders

In the state of California, domestic violence victims can ask for various protective orders to stop the harassment and also keep their abuser as far away from them as possible.

Emergency Protective Orders

The first type is an emergency protective order, which can be issued any time of the day or night. This order is issued when a law enforcement officer believes that you are in immediate danger.

To protect you, the officer will call a judge and request an emergency protective order. Although it goes into effect right away, it only lasts for five business days or seven calendar days, whichever comes first.

Temporary & Permanent Restraining Orders

Before the emergency protective order runs out, apply for a permanent restraining order. The hearing for the permanent order will probably not be for a few weeks, so you will need to ask the court to issue a temporary order that will protect you in the meantime.

These orders can provide immediate protection to victims of domestic violence. Most orders require the abuser to move out of the family home and refrain from making any type of contact with you.

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

Finally, there is a domestic violence restraining order (DVRO). Domestic violence victims and their attorneys will need to attend a hearing in order to obtain this type of order.

During the hearing, the courts will listen to both sides before determining whether a permanent order should be issued. If it is issued, the order will remain in effect for up to five years. After five years have passed, the victim will need to request an extension.

The judge can either extend the order by five years or make the order permanent.

Filing for all of these protective orders is imperative, but it can be challenging for domestic violence victims who are overwhelmed with emotion.

Fortunately, our Oceanside domestic violence attorneys are here to help victims get the restraining orders they need to keep their loved ones safe.
