A civil harassment restraining order provides a person protection from another person due to physical harm, threat of physical harm or stalking. However, oftentimes valid civil harassment restraining orders can be denied due to insufficient pleadings or petitions. That is why having a skilled and qualified attorney is so important, whether you are petitioning or defending an order.

Many civil harassment restraining orders, although valid, are wrongfully denied by the court due to a lack of appropriate pleading. By obtaining a skilled attorney who can file the necessary pleadings, it will provide more assurance that a judge will grant a civil restraining order.
Allegations can quickly escalate in what may have started out as a verbal argument. Your former spouse could be retaliating against you or you may have a disgruntled partner. Regardless of the situation, you need proper defense against a petition in order to avoid any harmful consequences.
If a petition for a restraining order is granted against you, it can last for up to three years. This will show up with police departments and agencies throughout California and can adversely affect your employment prospects. For example, a potential employer could run a background check on you and discover the restraining order. This is both embarrassing and also bad for your career and any future personal relationships. Seek the help of an experienced lawyer who can effectively defend you.
