There are several ways that an order of protection can help protect victims of violence in California. Generally, a protective order, or restraining order, restricts the actions of the restrained person in order to allow the protected person, or protected persons, to continue living in a normal manner without the added worry of violence or abuse.
The restrained person is the person who has been accused or convicted of violence or abuse toward the protected person. The protected party in the restraining order may include the person who faced abuse as well as the protected person’s children or other loved ones.
