Court releases multilingual video on restraining orders

The Santa Clara County Superior Court recently launched an educational video designed to provide information about domestic violence restraining orders in English, French, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Spanish.

The video, “Information Regarding Domestic Violence Restraining Orders,” aims to educate individuals on the restraining order process when it comes to responding to or receiving a domestic violence restraining order.

The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara firmly believes that every member of our community deserves an equal opportunity to fully comprehend the legal process and their roles within it,” said Family Court Supervising Judge, Hon. Brooke Blecher. “By providing comprehensive language options, the court aims to bridge the gap and empower individuals with the knowledge they need to protect themselves and their loved ones.” This video covers a range of topics related to domestic violence restraining orders, including the various types of restraining orders available and the processes involved in obtaining them. The video can be accessed at scscourt.org/domesticviolence.
