Restraining Order Clinics
Due to Corona Virus, the San Diego Superior Court has temporarily suspended some of its services. Our walk-in clinics are temporarily closed to in-person assistance.
Despite the court closures, we can still offer free clinic services over the phone. If you would like information and assistance with filing a restraining order, please call (619) 738-9844 and leave a message for a clinic attorney. We will return your call as quickly as possible.
If you feel you cannot wait for a call back from the clinic attorney, you can proceed directly to the courthouse to obtain assistance at the Family Law Facilitator’s Office. We recommend you still leave a message for a clinic attorney and we will call you back to make sure you are getting the assistance you need.
We have also produced some sample court forms for you to use if you would like to fill out the restraining order on your own. You can use these forms as a guide, while filling out the forms. See the links below.
To get a copy of the forms that are fillable, they can be found on the San Diego Superior Court website:

When you go to the courthouse to file, make sure to tell the sheriffs at the entrance that you are there to file or to speak to the Family Law Facilitator regarding restraining orders. Otherwise, the sheriffs will turn you away as they are trying to limit the spread of Corona Virus.
