CALIFORNIA FAMILY CODE
PROTECTIVE ORDERS AND OTHER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION ORDERS
Family Code Section 6340
(a) The court may issue any of the orders described in Article 1 (commencing with
Section 6320) after notice and a hearing.
When determining whether to make any orders under this subdivision, the
court shall consider whether failure to make any of these orders may jeopardize
the safety of the petitioner and the children for whom the custody or
visitation orders are sought. If the court makes any order for custody,
visitation, or support, that order shall survive the termination of any
protective order. The Judicial Council shall provide notice of this provision
on any Judicial Council forms related to this subdivision.
(b) The court may issue an order described in
Section 6321 excluding a person from a dwelling if the court finds that physical or
emotional harm would otherwise result to the other party, to a person
under the care, custody, and control of the other party, or to a minor
child of the parties or of the other party.
