  • Protocol for Implementation of Welfare and Institutions Code Section 241.1
  • Domestic Violence Procedures

    If the person seeking the restraining order and the person against whom the restraining order is sought have minor children in common, court orders may be entered regarding custody and visitation of the children.

    If both parents appear on the date of the court hearing on the request for a restraining order, they will be ordered to participate in a domestic violence-related orientation (even if they recently attended the 3-hour orientation class) and in a mediation conducted by Family Court Services. The mediation and orientation will take place in separate sessions in order to ensure the safety of both parents.

    The mediation will occur between, approximately, 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., immediately after orientation. The Court will hear the restraining order application and enter child custody and visitation orders (based on either the parties’ stipulation or after hearing) once the mediation is completed. In some cases, the parties may have to return to Court in the afternoon to have their matter heard.
