Marin County Attorney for Emergency Restraining Orders During the Coronavirus Crisis

Marin law firm for restraining orders and COVID-19

Lawyer Assisting With Obtaining a Restraining Order During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus outbreak has caused a significant increase in stress for nearly everyone in the United States, including residents of Marin County. Due to “shelter in place” orders, couples and families may be required to remain together at home. The situation has been especially difficult for those who struggle with drug or alcohol addiction, and many people have been unable to attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings or visit therapists to receive treatment. 

The acronym HALT applies to those who have an addiction. It stands for:

H - Hunger

A - Anger

L - Loneliness

T - Tiredness

Each of these issues can cause difficulty for drug addicts and alcoholics, and the isolation many are experiencing during the coronavirus pandemic can intensify the problems a person is experiencing. If a person in your home is struggling with addiction, and this has caused you to fear for the safety of yourself, your children, or the addict themselves, you may need to obtain a restraining order. This can protect you if the person becomes violent or makes threats against family members, or it can prevent them from entering your home after they have been exposed to the coronavirus. You may also be able to use a restraining order to remove the person from your home and ensure that they receive the necessary treatment.

While the courts in Marin County are currently closed for many types of cases, they will remain open for those who need to obtain emergency restraining orders. Burglin Law Offices, P.C. can provide the legal help you need to receive a restraining order under California Family Law Code section 6200 et. seq. We are here to help with your concerns. Contact our office at 415-729-7300, and Attorney Paul Burglin will personally return your call as soon as possible.
