Protect Yourself; Protect Your Family | Santa Clara County Orders For Protection Attorney

What can a protective order do? A protective order can place a number of restrictions on the restrained person, including:

  • No contact with the victim — the restrained person may not contact the victim by telephone, email, texting, written messages or other forms of communication
  • No harassment — the restrained person may not, attack, threaten, assault (sexually or otherwise), hit, follow, stalk, molest, destroy personal property, disturb the peace, keep under surveillance or block the movements
  • "Stay away" order — the restrained person is required to stay a certain distance away from the victim 

A restraining order can be difficult to obtain because the paperwork involved to file the request for a protective order is cumbersome and because the burden of proof required at hearing may be difficult to satisfy.
