Restraining Orders


A civil harassment restraining order is a court order that helps protect people from violence, stalking, serious harassment, or threats of violence.

You can ask for a civil harassment restraining order if:

  • A person has abused (or threatened to abuse), sexually assaulted, stalked, or seriously harassed you, and
  • You are scared or seriously annoyed or harassed.

A restraining order is a court order. It can order the restrained person to:

  • Not contact you or any member of your household;
  • Not go near you, your children, or others who live with you, no matter where you go;
  • Stay away from your work, your school, or your children’s school; or
  • Not have a gun.

Once the court issues (makes) a restraining order, it goes into a statewide computer system. This means that law enforcement officers across California can see there is a restraining order in place

New California Expungement Law


More than 11 million arrest and conviction records have been wiped clean in the first six months of the implementation of a new California law, marking the largest expungement over that time period in the country’s history.

Lawmakers passed Senate Bill 731 which expands options for sealing criminal records beyong cannabis-related offenses but excludes sex offenses. The bill offers individuals with a wider range of criminal convictions the opportunity to seal their records. The eligibility criteria requires that a person can apply for record sealing within four years of completing their sentence, provided they have not been arrested again during that period.
