How Do I Get a Restraining Order in California?

A Domestic Violence Restraining Order can be filed by anyone involved in an intimate relationship (married, used to date, had intimate relations, lived together—not as roommates, are parents of a child in common) or are related by the second degree (parent-child; grandparent-grandchild; siblings; aunt-nephew, for example).

Under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act, an act of abuse includes:

  • Physically attempting to or actually hurting someone else
  • Any form of sexual assault
  • Threats to hurt someone
  • False imprisoning or restraining someone's movements
  • Harassing, stalking, impersonating, or disturbing someone's peace

Protection from abuse can include those whom live with you, including pets, getting a kick-out order if you live with the abuser so you can have exclusive use of your dwelling, and getting group phone lines with the abuser separated.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease.

    “I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease. My biggest concern was my kids and being protected for our future. She guided me in what was to come and advised me that it's going to be a process with everything that myself and my husband had going on. She was willing to work with me and I truly appreciated that. She also let me know that for part of what I was going through, I didn't need a lawyer. She was trying to save me some money. Who does that nowadays? She was very sympathetic to my situation and showed that she really cared. Once my current situation is dealt with I will be going to her to file my divorce.”

    Susan

  • I highly recommend this firm!

    “Joy provides exceptional representation with the highest level of experience and treated my case with genuine care. I highly recommend this firm!”

    Wyler S.

  • In her office she is attentive & mild mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG!

    “Child custody and divorce cases can be costly, anyone going into one should know that up front. That being said, Joy Kraft has been extremely reasonable & willing to work with me. The initial law firm I used was much more expensive & yielded zero results. Iin fact, I believe even hurt my case from the start. Joy took over my case & since then things have been moving in my direction & getting much better. My case is a child custody case & when it initially started (before Joy took over) I only had 6hrs of visitation per week with my child. I now have 3 overnights & 2 weekdays every other week & my case is most certainly not over so more time is on it's way. I went from about 5% time with my child to about 30% with more time most certainly on the way. Joy pays attention to detail & she knows my case just as well as I do. In her office she is attentive & mild-mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG ! She is quit impressive in the courtroom & she knows family law just as well as she will know your case. I could not be happier with my choice of representation. I feel very confident knowing I have a lawyer who knows my case & is fighting tooth & nail on my behalf. I highly recommend Joy Kraft to anyone going through a Family Law issue”

    Anthony

  • The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1!

    “I have been in and out of family court for the past 14 years battling a high conflict case. I have had a total of 5 different attorneys prior to finding this firm. This firm is the ONLY firm that made me feel cared for, heard, and understood. The patience they had for all my questions, issues and concerns, the dedication working late hours to do the best job possible. The true care and attention they put into my case makes this firm the best firm I have ever dealt with. My case is a high conflict case and before I found Brigitte and Joy I was completely lost and taken advantage of by my previous attorneys. The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1! Having dealt with so many attorneys, I would, hands down, recommend this firm to everyone in need of representation. They have been a light in my path after such a long dark road! I am so grateful.”

    Sheyla C.

  • Her advice has been spot on and I have always felt that she tries not to over-promise and yet always over-delivers.

    “Joy is very knowledgeable and has concern for her clients that goes well above what they could pay. Her advice has been spot on and I have always felt that she tries not to over-promise and yet always over-delivers. If she knows some issues will be tough, she tells you and lets you decide if you want to spend the money trying anyhow. But when you do, she does her best to pull off a miracle. Great staff too! Thanks for all the help.”
