California state info related to Civil Harassment
When dealing with third parties outside of your immediate family or dating relationships, sometimes harassment can occur, causing you to feel threatened and scared.
I can advise you whether or not a Civil Harassment Protective Order will help protect you from the abuser in your life.
Civil Harassment is defined by the California Code of Civil Procedure 527.6. The law is designed to protect you from:
- a credible threat of violence
- or simply being subjected to conduct that significantly harasses, annoys or alarms you and serves no actual purpose other than to cause emotional distress.
As a certified family law specialist in California, I have worked with many clients who have been the victim of civil harassment from neighbors, friends, acquaintances and other people whose intent is to emotionally damage or distress the person they are harassing.
I know that when you are subjected to this kind of conduct, you want nothing more than for it to just stop. I can help you do that by assisting you in filing for a civil harassment restraining order.
A restraining order will not only require that the person harassing you stay a certain distance from you at all times, but can also legally bar the person harassing you from committing certain acts of violence, verbal abuse or harassment.
When seeking a civil harassment restraining order, you need to have clear and concise evidence that the person you are attempting to restrain has harassed you and will likely continue to do so if nothing is done. I can help you persuasively present your facts to the court to get the protection you need. Call me today for a consultation: (714) 740-2542.
