Aliso Viejo Divorce Lawyer
In the state of California there are essentially two overarching categories for grounds for divorce:
- Irreconcilable differences
- Incurable insanity
Of the two, an irreconcilable difference is the broader and more common element for divorce. This category entails various issues including domestic violence. If you have been the victim of domestic violence then you have grounds for divorce in the state of California. However once the divorce is finalized you may wonder what will keep your abusive ex-spouse from returning to you and retaliating against you or your children. The answer to this is a restraining order.
A restraining order is an order for an individual to desist from certain actions or to perform certain actions. Generally speaking a restraining order, in the case of domestic violence, will prevent an abusive ex-spouse from coming to your home, your place of work or within a certain distance of you and your children. It can also prevent them from owning a weapon of any kind. If this person were to violate their restraining order then they could be required to serve jail time or pay various fines, or both. It is important that you have legal representation on your side if you wish to obtain a restraining order for your ex-spouse as you may need to provide evidence and provide proof that you or your children were the victims of domestic violence.
