Civil Restraining Orders in Santa Clarita

Protecting You and Your Loved Ones

It is an unfortunate reality that not everyone in our lives can be trusted and at times these people can even become dangerous at a moment’s notice. Harassment is defined as a person who feels they are in immediate danger, or feel as though there safety is in credible danger. In addition, it is important to understand that abuse plays a large role when someone’s safety is threatened, beyond sexual advances, excessive attention is when someone is being harassed by any form of communication including phone calls and electronic transmissions.

  • Friends
  • Distant Family Members
  • Neighbors
  • Roommates
  • Anyone That You Are Not Closely Associated With

Civil Versus Domestic Restraining Orders

It is extremely important to note that typically persons that are concerned with harassment are being harassed by someone that they have a standing relationship with. However, when the harasser in question is someone the harassed individual has a standing relationship with then it is categorized as a domestic restraining order.

Domestic restraining orders can be filed against:

  • Current Partners/Spouses
  • Former Partners/Spouses
  • Current Boyfriends/Girlfriends
  • Former Boyfriends/Girlfriends
  • Or any family member including parents, children, siblings, grandparents, or in-laws

Regardless of the kind of restraining order you need, restraining orders work to effectively end the harassment you are experiencing. Essentially a restraining order will ensure the restrained individual follows a certain court ordered criteria of behavior when it comes to interacting with the individual who filed the order.

Restraining orders typically include:

  • Lack of communication
  • Certain distances being maintained at all times
  • Restrictions against owning weaponry
  • Mandated financial support
  • Property agreements
