Domestic Violence Restraining Order Clinic – Remote
Bay Area Legal Aid’s Contra Costa County Domestic Violence Restraining Order clinics are currently being held remotely over the phone every Tuesday from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm. Please contact either STAND! at 1-888-215-5555 or the Family Justice Center at (510) 974-7200 to schedule an appointment.
Preparing for your appointment: Please keep your phone fully charged and position yourself in a quiet, confidential location for the duration of your appointment. If you have an Emergency Protective Order or child custody orders currently in place, please have a photo of those documents prepared to email to our clinic volunteer. If you have any evidence (photos, screenshots, etc.) that you would like attached to your restraining order request, please have these ready to email to our clinic volunteer. If you know you will no longer be attending your scheduled appointment, please let STAND! or the Family Justice Center know so we can open that appointment slot for another member of our community in need.
Attending your appointment: If you have an appointment currently scheduled, please stay by your phone and wait for a call from our clinic volunteers at 9:30 am. This call will come from an unknown number. If you do not answer, our volunteers will leave you a voicemail and attempt to contact you one more time. If you miss your appointment call, you can reschedule your appointment with the organization that originally scheduled you.
Additional information: For further detail on issues the clinic can assist with, time and location information, and additional languages (Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese), please download the multilingual clinic flyer.
