The Restraining Order Process in Ventura
Typically an individual files for the issuance of a Temporary Restraining Order, which may be done without notice to the alleged perpetrator. A judge or commissioner will grant the TRO, which must then be served on the restrained party. A hearing will then be set, and it is during this hearing that the accused will be provided the opportunity to address the allegations. Permanent Restraining Orders may be issued for up to five years.
The Court has broad discretion to make any order it deems appropriate, including (but not limited to) requiring the restrained party to:
Leave the Family Residence
Attend Mandatory Anger Management Classes
Submit to Supervised Visitation with their Children
Submit to Drug Testing
Refrain from all Contact with the Victim & their Family Members, including Children
Refrain from Owning Firearms or any Weapons
