A Restraining Order is a court order that protects you from abuse. It can protect you from being physically abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed.
A Domestic Violence Restraining Order can require your abuser to stop threatening you, your children, or the people who live with you. Restraining orders can also tell someone to stop calling, move out, stay away from where you live or work, give up a gun, limit the time he or she spends with your children, pay certain bills, pay child support, give you back your things, or pay some or all of what your lawyer charged you.
A restraining order declaration is information written down in your own words, that will help the judge make a decision in your case. You must submit the declaration to the court along with Judicial Council form DV-100, Request for Order (Domestic Violence Prevention).
