  • Visitation supervisor if the order provides for supervised visitation;
  • Your child's school or childcare provider;

  • Counseling agency, if either you or the person to be restrained are Ordered to attend counseling;

Your restraining order is enforceable in every state, territory, or Indian reservation.

  • If you move out of California, contact the police, sheriff, or other law enforcement agency in the state, territory, or reservation where you move to so that they know to enforce your orders. They will probably tell you to bring them a certified copy of your orders.
  • Also, provide copies to your children's new schools or daycare providers that can help enforce the order in your new state.
