Restraining Orders

Helping You Find Protection from Domestic Violence

If you or someone you love is the victim of domestic violence, you have the right to seek and obtain a restraining order as protection. Restraining orders are free to obtain and many can be granted the same day they are requested.

While anyone can request a restraining order on their own, having a knowledgeable Los Angeles family lawyer with experience in handling DVRO and CHRO cases by your side throughout the process can make matters easier and less overwhelming. We can ensure that all paperwork is completed appropriately and that you receive the protection you need.

If you are in need of a domestic violence restraining order, do not hesitate, call The Broadway Law Firm now at (213) 344-0545.


Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

A domestic violence restraining order (DVRO) protects a person from an abuser with whom they share an intimate relationship. This could be a spouse, domestic partner, boyfriend/girlfriend, or roommate. DVROs also cover those who are closely related including parents, siblings, grandparents, and/or children.

When you obtain a domestic violence restraining order against someone, the DVRO can compel the restrained person to cease contact and stay away from you, your family, your home, and your workplace. A DVRO can also compel someone to pay child support, spousal support, and even certain bills.

DVROs may prevent the abuser from:

  • Seeing his/her children
  • Going to certain places
  • Owning a gun
  • Living in their place of residence

If you are involved in a situation where you believe a DVRO is necessary, you should act quickly. Our Los Angeles restraining order attorneys can help you seek a DVRO to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Civil Harassment Restraining Orders

Civil harassment is a type of harassing conduct committed by one party when that party is not closely related to or involved in a current (or prior) romantic relationship to the other party.

These relationships include:

  • Non-immediate family members such as cousins, aunts, and uncles
  • Neighbors
  • Friends
  • Strangers

If you feel threatened by someone’s harassment, you may file for a civil harassment restraining order to protect yourself.

There are multiple types of civil harassment restraining orders that work to provide a party with protection:

  • Emergency protective orders: Restraining orders that only police officers can request
  • Temporary restraining orders: Restraining orders given by a judge when a party goes to court to request the restraining order; these are usually valid for 20-25 days and a party must then go back to court to extend it
  • Criminal protective orders (or stay-away orders): Given when the abuse or harassment is so severe that the District Attorney files criminal charges; the criminal protection order is valid the entire time a criminal case is ongoing

If you are in fear for your safety and have questions about how to obtain a restraining order, contact the Los Angeles restraining order attorneys at The Broadway Law Firm today. Call (213) 344-0545.

“I reached out to Broadway Law Firm regarding a personal injury claim. The Attorney who took my case was Mark. I would definitely recommend Mark. He has the experience necessary to win your case and get you the highest compensation. Thank you Broadway Law Firm I couldn’t be happier.”

Fernando Vasquez


“I had interviewed 12 lawyers before hiring the Broadway Law Firm. My case got affected by the pandemic and it was an extremely stressful and difficult time. Most of the other lawyers treated me like earning potential and gave me the rates I could not afford, without any promises to win my case. Once I talked to Mark Kiran I had hope. I was then represented by Anthony Catena who always was very professional and treated me with respect. He didn’t drug my case, made sure I don’t accumulate unnecessary charges, and was a great support during the most stressful time in my life. He won my case, got my son back to me AND got me some money back from my ex to pay my legal fees. I am beyond grateful for their work and support. If you are looking for a legal representation don’t waste your time and call them, they got you.”

“They were able to handle my injury case in a timely matter. I was kind of reluctant to deal with any kind of lawyers because of the horror stories I’ve heard. However the people at Broadway Law Firm we’re always able to help out and provide information. It kept me at comfort knowing I can call whenever and if any changes presented themselves Mark would call me back as soon as possible. Mark was my attorney and took direction . He got me the settlement I wanted and needed. This whole experience was a walk in the park.”
