How Do Restraining Orders Work In California?

Also known as a protective order, a restraining order is a court order restricting a person’s access to another person. Often, the court will issue a restraining order because the person requesting it is being stalked or abused by the other person. In California, restraining orders can include all or some of the following three orders:

  • Personal conduct order
  • Stay-away order
  • Residence exclusion

In other words, the restraining order can require the subject not to visit the victim; not to harass, threaten, disturb or assault the victim; and to move out of the home the subject shares with the victim. Once the restraining order is in place, the restrained person can be punished by up to five days in jail for each violation.
