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?

  • This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.

    “After having lost twice, I saw no hope in sight. I just wanted to be around my son more. I came to Kraft Miles with just my courage and she immediately gave me hope. My ex hired an extremely strong attorney. I'd gone through one attorney that sucked and tried to represent myself on the 2nd time around, only to be taken for a ride by my ex's attorney. Ms. Kraft Miles came in and turned it around. She won my case and got me almost a month of extra vacation time a year with my son. She is uber-confident and knowledgeable. Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy. This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.”

    Former Client

  • Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach.

    “I am a baby boomer who found himself in a legal battle for my children (infant twins). There were many issues that weighed against me getting custody of my children.

    1. My age vs. the mother's age.
    2. The fact that I live on the east coast.
    3. There were paternity issues.
    4. A lot of accusations made against me which were not true.
    5. A move away order to another country.

    Just to name a few.

    I felt overwhelmed and lost for 8 months and did not know if I was going to be able to get my children or ever see them again. Through it all, Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her team stayed the course and amassed all of the documentation to prove that the truth was not being told by the mother. They presented a defense that was structured and exact. While opposing counsel was not as prepared. Their hard work paid off, I now have custody of my children. Opposing counsel also was asking for an ungodly amount of money, they wanted me to pay for her legal fees. That was also taken off the table because of the amount of work and fact-finding by Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her firm. The entire firm from her Mother on down makes you feel like family, which I have to tell you made this a lot easier for me. Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach. If you ever find yourself up against a wall and you don't know where to turn look no further than Attorney Joy Kraft Miles.

  • They really know their craft.

    “Ms. Kraft and her team of attorneys are of the most amazing caliber. I didn't have much money and had a strange difficult situation, but from the moment I spoke with their firm they gave me peace of mind, and I did not feel judged. They had the opposing counsel for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They really know their craft. I highly recommend them they're all amazing and I am so grateful to have been their client.”
