Child abuse can come in many forms. Some are non-violent, such as emotional abuse, psychological abuse, or neglect, while other cases can be violent or cause physical harm, such as physical or sexual abuse. No matter what the situation may be, a restraining order can be obtained to prevent the abuse from causing further harm without suffering criminal penalties. If you are a friend, neighbor, teacher, or other person looking to report child abuse, contact the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services. If you are the child's parent or legal guardian, you can approach the court and file for a temporary restraining order on behalf of your child, protecting them from further abuse until your court hearing for a permanent order.
