Inglewood, CA asked in Family Law for California

Q: What is Notice Of hearing And temporary Restraining Order in CA?

Hello, I am new to this site.I have a couple of questions to ask and will appreciate any helpful answer.

My brother is having issues with his ex-girl friend. They were still talking on and off. So things got bad to an extend that she brought him a Notice of Hearing and Temporary Restraining Order. We are confused and we don't know what to do. They have to go to court?

Going to court,is it for the Judge to hear from both parties? Or Is it for the Judge to let my brother know the consequences of the restraing order? Or will he be charge for a crime?

Thank you

A: First of all if she brought him the notice then it was not served properly. Personal service is required but it must be by a person over the age of 18 who is not a party to the matter.

On the court date the judge will hear both sides and make a ruling based on the facts.

I would suggest you contact an attorney in your area. The ramifications of having a restraining order placed on you need to be explained to you.
