While the most commonly known type of protective order is a restraining order, used to prevent an individual from abusing or otherwise coming near the person who has requested it, there is another type of protective order that is used in conjunction with a divorce proceeding. This is called a family law restraining order. Family law restraining orders are often issued at the beginning of a divorce proceeding. They can be issued to prevent someone from selling off or hiding marital assets, kidnapping the children or any other action that may cause harm during the divorce process. If you feel you may need a family law restraining order against your spouse while you being your divorce, contact a Covina divorce lawyer from my firm today.
The other, more widely known type of restraining order is the type typically used to protect someone from being physically harmed by another individual. This can also be useful in a divorce case, if there is a history of domestic violence to consider. This type of restraining order can prevent the person that has perpetrated the abuse against you and your family from coming with a certain distance of you, your family, your work, home and your children's schools. If this protective order is violated, the perpetrator will likely be jailed. If you feel you and your family are in danger, contact my firm as soon as possible to set up the protection you need.
