We will also listen to your concerns and offer support and guidance through this challenging time.

In addition to direct physical harm, harassment, intimidation, unwanted phone calls, emails or texts can all be considered domestic abuse.

Answers about Protective Orders and Domestic Violence Hearings

There are two broad categories of protective orders in California: temporary and permanent. A temporary order lasts, typically, from the time of its issuance until the time the Court sets a hearing to hear the permanent restraining ordery. A permanent order, on the other hand, may last much longer but is not actually permanent.

In certain instances where the parties are still residing together in the same house and there are incidents of domestic violence and/or threats of domestic violence, the spouse who is being subjected to the violence can also seek an emergency “residence exclusion order” seeking to have the abusive spouse physically removed from the residence. Other relief that may be considered at a domestic violence hearing (either on regular notice or on an ex parte basis) includes the following:

  • Restraining orders against annoying or harassing one spouse
  • Restraining orders against incurring debts on the credit of one spouse by the other
  • Temporary orders regarding child custody, child visitation and child support
  • Temporary orders regarding spousal support
  • Temporary orders regarding attorneys’ and accounting fees and costs
