I am from california. My wife filed a restraining order

Customer Question
against me. After initial trial...
I am from california. My wife filed a restraining order against me. After initial trial the judge postponed argument to another day. Now my attorney said my wife is ready to accept for non CLETS restraining order for 1 year.
What does that mean? How is it different from a regular restraining order?
If i agree for this can she go back again in future to court and ask for restraining order even if i am not in contact with her?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A CLETS restraining order is one entered into the restraining order database that allows the police to arrest the person for any violations. A non-CLETS order is one where the victim has to go to court to file a motion for any violation and you would have to return to court to defend against the violation. It is a private stay away order is what it really is, one that does not give the police the right to arrest you for a violation.
If you have no more contact with her she cannot go back and get another order absent proving that you violated the current order and are still trying to make contact.
