Types of Restraining Orders in California

Like other states, California law allows for several different types of restraining order. The type of restraining order that is best for you and your family will differ depending on your unique circumstances.

There are three primary types of restraining orders:

  • Emergency Protective Orders: These can be issued at any time by a law enforcement official, and last for up to five days. The abuse victim may receive temporary custody if there are children involved.
  • Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO): Generally lasting for a month or less, a TRO is usually issued for the duration of the permanent restraining order hearing.
  • Permanent Restraining Orders: These can be issued to last between one and five years, following a judge hearing all evidence presented in a case.

It is also important to note that, no matter the type of restraining order you pursue or have placed against you, it does not have to be set in stone. A temporary restraining order may be later become a permanent restraining order if the court sees fit. Likewise, a restraining order of any degree can be lessened or lifted entirely.
