Domestic violence is a serious matter in Camarillo, Los Angeles, and across the country for that matter. Every year, thousands of women and children are hurt during domestic violence incidents; some severely and even fatally. Unfortunately for many, they do not recognize the signs of someone being abusive until it is too late. Or sometimes the person hides their true colors until later on the relationship. By that time, the victim is either too afraid or too dependent on the abuser to leave. Leaving an abusive situation is not easy and it takes a lot of planning and strength; emotionally, mentally and sometimes even financially.

In many cases, domestic violence scenarios include obtaining a restraining order. A restraining order is a legal document prohibiting the abuser from contacting you or anyone close to you in order to get to you, and vice versa. If the terms of the restraining order are violated, legal action can be sought.
