Issuance of No Contact Domestic Violence Restraining Order Against Client Was Denied by Judge
Domestic Violence Restraining Order
Denial of C.L.E.T.S
My client was accused of domestic violence by his daughter in law. My client's daughter in law was seeking a full California Law Enforcement Telecommunications Systems (C.L.E.T.S.) no contact order. The significance of a C.L.E.T.S. restraining order is that all law-enforcement officers across the state have immediate access to who are the protected and restrained parties in the restraining order. Additionally, this restraining order would have shown up on a background search. However, what was worse was that if the order was issued, it would have prevented my client from seeing his beloved granddaughter. After filing our response to the petition and a hearing on the petitioner's claims of domestic violence, the court denied issuing petitioner a no contact domestic violence restraining order. My client was free to see his granddaughter, not in the C.L.E.T.S. database and not subject to the embarrassment of this restraining order popping up on a background search.
