Orange County Domestic Violence Attorney

For a Restraining Order Attorney in
Orange County Call: (949) 716-2102

  Progress has been made to protect victims from domestic violence. However, abuse
  is still extensive.  It is rarely reported. The victim is afraid, afraid the abusive spouse
  will be arrested or even worse left in the home. Other times the victim feels that he
  or she is the cause of the violence and just needs to improve his or her behavior. The
  victim may feel overly sensitive, that there are no other options, or that no one will
  believe the accusation. At times, even family members are not aware of the violence.
  The victim is ashamed. Sometimes the victim lives with the violence before years before
  seeking an attorney's advice.

  The Orange County family law system protects people who suffer physical abuse by
  removing the abuser from the home. An abused individual can obtain a restraining order
  preventing contact between the abuser and the victim. Even if a person wants to remain
  married, the victim should call the police if he or she is punched, pushed, or choked.
  If there are no visible injuries, the police may ask one party to leave the premises until
  the parties cool down. If one party is injured, the non-injured spouse may be arrested.
  Orange County has laws to proctect victims of spousal abuse. If you are a victim and
  need a domestic violence attorney, contact Treviño Law, Inc. at (949) 716.2102 to
  initiate a restraining order.

The automatic restraining orders prevent either party from destroying property, borrowing against an asset, gifting an asset, or changing any property owned by either party. The rules are designed to preserve the property of the parties until the property is divided by a court order. See more ATROs
