Thank you for your patience;
If there are any criminal matters pending (Domestic violence restraining orders are generally civil in nature) then, pursuant to Mary's law (CC 679 codified here) and case law (Pacers. v Superior Court) the “an objecting party is generally entitled to a stay of discovery in the civil action until disposition of the criminal matter.” This is known as the victims bill of rights- please see here
For civil matters, one can request a third party to provide documents, and if the other party claims a privilege (ie confidientiality) the court may still allow it if it is determined that the privilege is waived by virtue of plaintiff bringing it to issue via legal proceedings.
