There is help for victims of domestic violence. A Domestic Violence Restraining Order is an order signed by a civil court judge demanding that an abuser leave you alone or he or she will face serious legal consequences.
It offers protection for both women and men. The Domestic Violence Prevention Act was created to protect you and your children under the age of 18 from actual or threatened violence which includes but is not limited to:
· Physical injuries
· Sexual assault/molesting
· Threatening phone calls
If you are the victim of domestic violence in any form, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will set you on the right path. You do not have to live in fear. No one should put a hand on another person without paying the consequences.
