Fresno Domestic Violence Lawyer

Our Fresno Family Lawyer Is Here to Protect You

Domestic violence is a serious issue and should be handled cautiously. If you are suffering from abuse by an intimate partner or a household member, you should take immediate legal action.

Contact the Arnold Law Group, APC, for guidance on what to do and how to create an exit plan for you and your children. We can guide you through the legal process and help you obtain a protective order or a divorce, whether you are in Madera, Kings, or Tulare County.

Type of Protection & Restraining Orders in California

The three types of protective and restraining orders in California are:

  • Emergency protective order - Emergency protective orders are issued on the scene by a law enforcement officer. They are given after a law enforcement officer explains the circumstances on the telephone to a judge to receive permission to issue the order.
  • Temporary restraining order - The court can issue a temporary restraining order at an emergency hearing or after reading the victim’s declaration. These orders are usually suitable for 21 days but can be reissued.
  • Permanent restraining order - After a temporary restraining order is issued, the court will conduct a hearing to determine whether there is a need for a permanent restraining order. If a permanent order is granted, it will typically last five years.

Do Domestic Violence Cases Go To Court In California?

Most cases concerning domestic violence do not go to trial. However, the person asking for protection will have to “serve” the other person with a copy of all the restraining order papers before the court date. Having a lawyer for support from domestic violence experts can help make the process easier to handle.
