Help For Victims Of Abuse Through Restraining Orders                 

The Law Office of Bradley S. Sandler handles Domestic Violence in Beverly Hills and Restraining Orders in Beverly Hills and the greater Los Angeles area.  I work hard to protect those who have been abused or fear that they may be abused. I help clients file for an order of a protection from any person whom they believe will hurt them. Each state's restraining order places different restrictions on accused abusers, and many states offer more than one type of order. The orders have different names such as "restraining order," "order of protection," "injunction" and "protection order." In general, the order will force a person to stay away from you physically and cease any contact. I do whatever it takes to protect you and your family.


Note: I also represent those targeted in restraining orders. If you have been served with an order of protection, contact my law offices to begin the process of restoring your good name and your civil liberties. 


Understanding Orders Of Protection


Every U.S. state and territory has some form of restraining order to protect victims of abuse by keeping the accused abuser away from the abused. Each state recognizes orders issued by every other state. The purpose of these orders is to limit the behavior of the harmful or threatening person so that you do not have to live in fear of further abuse. I can help you understand exactly how orders of protection work in California. Some of types of protection offered in many states include:

  • Stay away provisions. This part of an order requires someone to stay a certain distance away from the person who asked for the order. They may also need to stay away from their home, their school and their place of business. This order can often be extended to protect your children as well.  
  • Cease abuse provisions. These provisions specifically require an abuser to stop abusing or threatening to abuse the protected person or persons.  
  • No-contact provisions. Most states allow orders preventing someone from attempting any contact with the protected person. This includes personal contact as well as contact by phone, computer, mail or even contact through a third party.  

Other common provisions found in some jurisdictions require the person the order is aimed at to give up their weapons or to   pay spousal or child support. In California, a court may even issue orders allowing you to take sole possession of vehicles or a living space by forcing the person listed in the order to move out.  


Restraining orders can be issued by different courts depending on the state. In most cases, a family court handles orders involving spouses. They may also be issued in civil or criminal cases. I will seek every possible legal remedy to protect you from someone who wishes to harm you or to clear your name if you have been served with an order of protection.
