Ventura Restraining Order Lawyer

Assisting Clients With Restraining Orders in Ventura County

It may be hard to notice the signs of violent or abusive behavior before agreeing to marry or getting involved in a relationship. In situations in which domestic violence, abuse, or disturbing behavior puts you or your children at risk of harm, legal action should and must be taken to ensure your safety and the safety of your family.

Restraining orders exist to protect individuals from continued acts of violence or abuse. This court order makes it a punishable offense for the abusive spouse to interact with or be within a specified distance from you and your family.

Would you like to obtain a restraining order against an abusive spouse? It is absolutely essential that you seek out a Ventura divorce lawyer immediately. We help clients all across Ventura County.

These include:

  • Civil Harassment Restraining Order (CHO) - Designed to stop non-violent abuse such as harassment, stalking, and other threatening behavior.
