Re: Sam A/Cal H
There's a couple of forms to fill in. You provide the detail, I lodge them with the county Justice court, and the court will decide one of three ways: they'll grant you a temporary protection order for thirty days, they'll deny one, or they'll call a hearing in court.
Given the history, I think it highly likely they'll grant on papers, in which case the sheriff will serve the protection order to the plaint to them. Once that's done, you apply for a longer protection order, one that lasts a year. That will require a court appearance.
I need you to provide copies of any police reports, and to come by [address]. Offices of the firm I belong to. We'll fill out the forms, you'll sign, I'll file, and I'll let you know the outcome.
