Domestic Violence Restraining Orders: Comprehensive Legal Assistance

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders (DVROs) are serious legal matters and should never be underestimated. It's crucial to seek immediate legal representation if you're served with a temporary domestic violence restraining order. 

As stated in California Family Code Section 3044, if a court finds that a party seeking child custody has perpetrated domestic violence against the other party or the child within the previous five years, a rebuttable presumption is triggered. This presumption suggests that granting physical or legal custody of a child to the offender is detrimental to the child's best interest, as per Family Code Section 3011.

To issue a permanent DVRO, a court must establish an incidence of domestic violence. Once issued, the Family Code Section 3044 presumption comes into effect. It's crucial to secure a seasoned family law attorney before a court issues a DVRO to effectively argue against such a presumption.

If you've been served with a temporary DVRO and concurrently charged with domestic violence (Penal Code Section 273.5 or Penal Code Section 243(e)(1)), it's crucial to contact a lawyer immediately.
