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:

  • assault
  • battery
  • stalking
  • 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.

Attorney in Orange County for civil harassment restraining orderAs 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.

My name is Cheryl Stack and I work for Chapman University in Orange, California. I have been employed with Chapman for twenty three years.

I was the victim of a harassment/stalking situation for over one year and was seeking legal assistance to get the female perpetrator to stop. At the time of my first meeting with Barbara, I had filed two police reports with the City of Orange Police department. I had also met with another attorney prior to meeting Barbara. After our first initial......
Barbara McNamara was recommended to me by a co-worker who had seen her in action while waiting for his case to be heard. My friend did not have representation at the time and was fine with that–until he saw Barbara. He said she was a TIGER in the courtroom! I took his advice and retained Barbara as my attorney. Barbara had her game face on when I met her and it was awesome! She had an intensity when listening to me talk, I knew she was totally engaged with what I had to say. Barbara laid it on the line and gave her candid opinion, which I appreciated and still appreciate. We.....
I would recommend Ms. McNamara because I believe she’s an attorney who is there for the child’s best interest.
