Thanks for the information.
You have 2 options.
Under Section 533 of the California Code of Civil Procedure
, a court may modify or terminate an injunction or restraining order upon a showing of a material change in the facts on which the restraining order was granted, a change in the law on which the restraining order was granted or that justice requires modification of the restraining order.
Therefore, you can file a Motion to Modify or Terminate the Restraining Order if you can show that, for example, the facts upon which the judge made the decision were false or exaggerated. You will have to have witnesses, proof of false statements made by the Petitioner, etc.
Further, the California judicial system allows those who have been found guilty of harassment or abuse to appeal the court's decision to place a restraining order on them, prohibiting their contact with the person in question. Before you appeal the decision, however, keep in mind that an appeal doesn't grant you a new trial
. Instead, a higher court will review your case
carefully to look for mistakes or inconsistencies on the part of legal counsel and the previous judge. It's a good idea to have a lawyer file your appeal, though it isn't mandatory.http://www.ehow.com/how_6515573_remove-restraining-order-california.html
Below is a link to the form that must be filed to appeal the decision made to grant the restraining order:http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/app002.pdf
I want to look up one more thing for you to see if it applies. But, I want to give you this answer so that you know that I am working on your question. I'll be back shortly with any additional information that I may be able to give to you.
Thanks for your patience.
