Not sure my husband of 40 years hit me August 7th. of this

Customer Question

Not sure my husband of 40 years hit me August 7th. of this year and I went to court on the Aug.10th. to get a temporary restraining order. At his court hearing the D.A. told me that I didn't need to do that as a temporary order is automatically issued. He violated the order went back to jail for 30 days. Yesterday, 11/4/2016 he came to the house and broke in and was again arrested for violating the restraining order but when I put in my case number, the temporary one I filed, it says it was dismissed. I don't know if the automatic one issued by the DA is in effect nor how to find out.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Lakewood, California
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I don't understand your question. I just said that I had filed a temporary order which the DA said I didn't need to do and he was re-arrested for violating the order last nite as I said.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

I will try and help. On this occasion (11/4) were the police called? Was he arrested? If not, were there witnesses? What is the status of the case from 8/7?

Please give me some more detail and I will try and help.
