Answer

Receiving notice that a Domestic Violence Restraining Order has been granted against you can be a frightening situation, especially if you do not agree with the accusations that have been alleged. In San Diego, a Family Court Temporary Domestic Violence Restraining Order can be granted by a Judge with only information presented by the accuser. Unfortunately, the party being restrained does not get to address the court until a hearing for a permanent Order is scheduled. However, there are procedures that can be done prior to the hearing that can assist with getting some modifications such as if you can no longer go to work without violating the Order. We may also be able to negotiate with the protected party concerning visitation with your children or the collection of your personal belongings. If the protected party is unwilling to negotiate, then retaining skilled counsel will allow you to properly present to the court your side of the story including evidence or testimony to help you show the Judge why a Permanent Domestic Violence Restraining Order is not needed.
