Civil Protective Orders

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.

  • “Great Attorney!”
    Thus far I am impressed with Tiffany L. Andrews. I found Tiffany on this very site while on a time crunch. Great reviews gave me hope. The start of my case occurred on a Wednesday night, Thursday night I was informed I needed legal counsel. I searched the web for hours until I came across Tiffany. The morning of Friday I called the office to schedule a phone consultation and informed them I needed a lawyer ASAP. Monday morning Tiffany showed up in court to represent me and I felt a sense of ease. I appreciate that Tiffany is very accessible. If I have a question she responds within a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to protect your privacy and rights. I hope the rest of my child dependency case is smooth sailing from here on out. Thank You, Tiffany, for your help. Greatly appreciated!

  • “International Service of Process and Divorce Guidance”
    Tiffany was very fast to respond, she was direct and very very knowledgeable. She took the time to quickly understand my situation and also advise on the correct process surrounding serving documents overseas. I was very satisfied with her level of prompt and above and beyond guidance. Thank you.

  • “Attorney With Compassion”
    Working with Tiffani Andrews Law office was a godsend. After struggling for a bit to get legal assistance, I found Brenda. She showed a great deal of empathy to me as I was unfamiliar with the California legal process, and had the need to get legal assistance as soon as possible for a divorce and child custody case. Her guidance and handoff to Stephanie could not have been more helpful and beneficial. I would recommend this office for all the obvious reasons, but also for their efficiency and clear value for the client. Tiffani Andrews Law has my complete trust.

  • “Excellent Process and Assistance”
    I'd like to thank Tiffany for her advice. I've been divorced for over a year and am still trying to collect on the settlement agreement. I had a question about the legal interest and if it's collectible and she said definitely! as long as the judgment doesn't preclude it. She was extremely helpful - also offering other remedies to assist in the collection of the funds. I would definitely call her again if I need more help.
