order. The attorney should be consulted promptly so that the attorney may assist you in responding to the order.
A la persona bajo restricción judicial: Esta orden durará hasta la fecha y hora indicada en el punto 5 al dorso. La persona protegida

dependency action pending, you may apply for a more permanent order under section 213.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code. In the
case of a child being abducted, you may apply for a Child Custody and Visitation Order from the court. You may seek the advice of an
attorney on any matter connected with your application for any future court orders. The attorney should be consulted promptly so that the
attorney may assist you in making your application. You do not have to have an attorney to get the protective order.
A la persona protegida: Esta orden durará sólo hasta la fecha y hora indicada en el punto 5 al dorso. Si usted desea que la protección
continúe, tendrá que solicitar una orden de la corte en la dirección indicada en el punto 6. La solicitud de la orden de protección es gratis.

punto 6, o si hay una acción legal pendiente de tutela juvenil, puede solicitar una orden más permanente conforme a la sección 213.5 del
código titulado en inglés Welfare and Institutions Code. En el caso del secuestro de un niño o una niña, usted puede solicitar de la corte
una orden para la guarda del niño o de la niña (Child Custody and Visitation Order). Puede consultar a un abogado en conexión con
cualquier asunto relacionado con las solicitudes de órdenes de la corte que usted presente en el futuro. Debe consultar un abogado
inmediatamente para que él o ella le pueda ayudar a presentar su solicitud. Para obtener la orden de protección no es necesario que un

To law enforcement: The emergency protective order shall be served upon the restrained party by the officer, if the restrained party can
reasonably be located, and a copy shall be given to the protected party. A copy shall be filed with the court as soon as practicable after
issuance. Also, the officer shall have the order entered into the computer database system for protective and restraining orders
maintained by the Department of Justice. The availability of an emergency protective order shall not be affected by the fact that the
endangered person has vacated the household to avoid abuse. A law enforcement officer shall use every reasonable means to enforce
an emergency protective order. A law enforcement officer who acts in good faith to enforce an emergency protective order shall not be
held civilly or criminally liable.
If a child is in danger of being abducted: This order will last only until the date and time noted in item 5 on the reverse. You may apply
for a child custody order from the court.
En el caso de peligro de secuestro de un niño o de una niña: Esta orden será válida sólo hasta la hora y fecha indicada en el punto 5

.
This emergency protective order is effective when made. This order shall expire on the date and time specified in item 5 on the reverse.
The provisions of this emergency protective order take precedence in enforcement over provisions of other existing protective orders
between the same protected and restrained persons to the extent the provisions of this order are more restrictive. In other words, the
provisions in this emergency protective order take precedence over the provisions in any other protective order, including a criminal
protective order, if (1) the person to be protected is already protected by the other protective order, (2) the person to be restrained is
subject to that other order, and (3) the provisions in this emergency order are more restrictive than the provisions in that other order. The
provisions in another existing protective order remain in effect and take precedence if they are more restrictive than the provisions in this
emergency protective order.
