How to Get a Restraining Order

Do you need a restraining order also called a protective order in San Diego or Southern California? A restraining order is a court order that protects you from being physically or sexually threatened, abused, stalked or harassed. Such an order can be granted to you as the “protected person” against someone who is the “restrained person” or it can be granted to you and your family or household members.
