Need A Restraining Order?
A “50-B”, or a domestic violence restraining order, is the right course of action when someone close to you or in a relationship with you is abusing you. This includes a current or former spouse, a roommate, a relative through blood, a significant other, or someone you share a child with.
Restraining orders do not apply when a child or grandchild is under the age of 16. In this case, courts require pertinent evidence of actual harm. At ER Law, our experienced lawyers can help you if you are seeking protection and would like to know more about this legal option.
Need A Civil No-Contact Order?
