California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 213.5
Welfare and Institutions Code Section 213.5, subdivision (a) permits a juvenile court to issue an order "enjoining any person from ... attacking, striking, ... threatening, ... harassing, ... coming within a specified distance of, or disturbing the peace of the child or any parent ... ."
"Issuance of a restraining order under section 213.5 does not require 'evidence that the restrained person has previously molested, attacked, struck, sexually assaulted, stalked, or battered the child.' (In re B.S., supra, 172 Cal.App.4th at p. 193.)
Nor does it require evidence of a reasonable apprehension of future abuse. (Ibid.)" (In re C.Q., supra, 219 Cal.App.4th at p. 363.) Section 213.5 is analogous "to Family Code section 6340, which permits the issuance of a protective order under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act (Fam. Code, 6200 et seq.) ... if 'failure to make the order may jeopardize the safety of the petitioner ... .' " (In re B.S., supra, 172 Cal.App.4th at p. 194.) A restraining order issued after notice and hearing may remain in effect up to three years. ( 213.5, subd. (d)(1).)
Monitored visitation of a child is not incompatible with a restraining order. (In re C.Q., supra, 219 Cal.App.4th at p. 363 permanent restraining order requiring the father to stay away from the minor children "except during monitored visitation"; In re B.S., supra, 172 Cal.App.4th at p. 188 restraining order prohibiting the father from contacting the protected persons, "'except for brief and peaceful contact as required for court-ordered visitation of children'"; In re Cassandra B., supra, 125 Cal.App.4th at p. 206 restraining order issued against the mother who nevertheless was entitled to reasonable monitored visitation.)
