No one should be required to fear for their safety. Unfortunately, there are times when others do not respect the rules of our society. The situation can be even more frightening when it is a current or former family member who is engaging in acts of stalking, harassment, or violence. Fortunately, the law provides protection from those who engaging in such conduct. If you or a loved one feel that danger is imminent then it may be possible to gain a Domestic Violence Restraining Order (DVRO).

Lawyer assisting San Bernardino residents with filing for a restraining order
Family Courts will grant a restraining order when there is a credible threat of stalking, harassment, or violence by former or current family members or anyone else whom the victim has resided with. The first step in obtaining a restraining order is to file a Petition with the Court. The Petition must allege conduct which justifies the granting of a restraining order and the Court will often want to see proof of such conduct. The Court may then deny the Petition outright, grant a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and hold a hearing to see if the order should be extended, or the Judge may not grant the order immediately but hold a hearing to see if such an order should be issued. The Court will then use the hearing to determine if a more permanent order should be granted, the terms of any restrictions upon the offending party, and the duration of the order. How the Court will rule in any given situation will always depend on the facts of the case. It is strongly suggested that you retain an attorney to assist you.
