          DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FAQ #3


3. What ex parte orders are available?

A court may issue ex parte protective orders under Fam C §§6320-6327 to:
•        Enjoin personal conduct such as molesting, attacking, assaulting (generally or sexually), striking,
stalking, battering, threatening, harassing, contacting, or telephoning a person, or destroying personal
property, or coming within a certain distance of a person, disturbing the peace of a person, and, in the
court's discretion if good cause is shown, of other named family or household members (Fam C §6320
(a));

•        Grant to the petitioner, on a showing of good cause, the exclusive care, possession, or control of
any animal "owned, possessed, leased, kept, or held" by the petitioner or respondent (or by a minor child
who resides in the residence or household of either the petitioner or respondent) and order the
respondent to stay away from the animal and not take, transfer, encumber, conceal, molest, attack,
strike, threaten, harm, or otherwise dispose of the animal (Fam C §6320(b));

•        Exclude a party from the family dwelling, the dwelling of the other party, the common dwelling of
both parties, or the dwelling of the person who has care, custody, and control of a child to be protected
from domestic violence; these orders may be made for the period of time and on the conditions the court
determines, regardless of which party holds legal or equitable title or is the lessee of the dwelling (Fam C
§6321(a); see §2.12);

•        Enjoin specific conduct to effect an order under Fam C §6320 or §6321 (Fam C §6322);

•        Prohibit disclosure of the address or other identifying information of a party, child, parent, guardian
or other caretaker of a child (Fam C §6322.5);

•        Determine the temporary custody and visitation of a minor child (Fam C §6323; see §2.13);

•        Determine the temporary use, possession, and control of real or personal property of the parties
and the payment of any liens or encumbrances coming due while the order is in effect (Fam C §6324;
see §2.14); and

•        Restrain a married person (or registered domestic partner) from specific acts in relation to
community, quasi-community, and separate property, as described in Fam C §2045 (Fam C §6325; see
§2.14).
