Folsom Civil Protective Order Attorneys

Northern California Lawyers for Restraining Orders & Civil Protective Orders

If you or a member of your family is being stalked, harassed, threatened, or abused, you may request a civil harassment restraining order. This type of restraining order is different than a domestic violence restraining order, as it cannot be ordered against a spouse, ex-spouse, dating partner, or close relative (such as a parent, child, sibling, or grandparent).

Instead, civil protective orders should be used if you are experiencing harassment from a:

  • Friend
  • Neighbor
  • Roommate
  • Family member more than two degrees removed (such as an aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, or cousin)

If you need help requesting a civil protective restraining order to protect yourself or your family, the Law Office of Tiffany L. Andrews, P.C. can help. Our restraining order attorneys can also assist you if you feel that a protective order has been unfairly or unnecessarily taken against you.

You don’t have to put up with harassment. Reach out to our civil harassment restraining order attorneys now by calling (916) 794-4576 or completing our online contact form.

How to File a Civil Protective Order in CA

The process of obtaining a civil protective order in Folsom is as follows:

  1. You will need to complete the necessary paperwork.
  2. Pay the applicable fee, unless you qualify for a fee waiver.
  3. A judge will decide whether or not to approve the request within one business day, if not sooner.
  4. If approved, a temporary order will be instated. This order will only last until your hearing.

How Can a Civil Harassment Restraining Order Protect Me?

A civil harassment restraining order can prevent the person from:

  • Contacting you or your family
  • Approaching you, your children, or anyone you live with, no matter where you are
  • Maintain a certain distance from your work, school, or home
  • Possessing a gun

Violations of a civil protective order could result in fines, jail time, or both.
