Restraining Orders Offer Protection
In the state of California, a restraining order is a court order that can protect someone from being physically or sexually abused, threatened, stalked or harassed. The person who is getting the restraining order is called the “protected person.” The person the order is against is the “restrained person.” Sometimes, restraining orders include other “protected persons” like family or household members of the protected person.
