If you are facing harassment from a neighbor, colleague, friend, or anyone else, you may be legally entitled to a civil harassment restraining order.
Nobody should have to face harassment, and we at The Foothill Law Group will fight to protect you and your family. When a person seeks a civil harassment restraining order, there are three major points to consider:
- Have you or your children been victims of violence by the person you are seeing the restraining order against?
- Even if you have not been a victim of violence, has the person made a credible threat against your or your children?
- Have there been knowing and willful actions against you that have no legitimate purpose? These actions do not have to be violent and can include unwarranted text messages, emails, phone calls, social media contact, and other forms of communications.
According to California law, to obtain a civil harassment restraining order, the actions outlined above must cause significant emotional distress. If you fall into one or more of the three points outlined above, contact The Foothill Law Group today.
If you have been served with a civil harassment restraining order, and you do not feel your actions have placed you into any of the listed categories, we can fight to defend and you and get the restraining order voided.
