WARNINGS AND NOTICES
1. VIOLATION OF THE ORDER IS SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. Violation of this protective order may be punished as
a misdemeanor, a felony, or a contempt of court. Taking or concealing a child in violation of this order may be a felony and
punishable by confinement in state prison, a fine, or both. Traveling across state or tribal boundaries with the intent to violate the
order may be punishable as a federal offense under the Violence Against Women Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2261(a)(1) (1994).
NOTICE REGARDING FIREARMS. Any person subject to a protective order is prohibited from owning, possessing,
purchasing or attempting to purchase, receiving or attempting to receive, or otherwise obtaining a firearm. Such conduct
is subject to a $1,000 fine and imprisonment. The person subject to these orders must relinquish any firearms (by
surrendering the firearm to local law enforcement, or by selling or storing it with a licensed gun dealer) and not own or
possess any firearms during the period of the protective order. (Pen. Code, § 136.2(d).) Under federal law, the issuance of
a protective order after hearing will generally prohibit the restrained person from owning, accepting, transporting, or
possessing firearms or ammunition. A violation of this prohibition is a separate federal crime.
Specified defendants may request an exemption from the firearm relinquishment requirements stated in item 8 on page 1 of this
order. The court must check the box under item 8 to order an exemption from the firearm relinquishment requirements. If the
defendant can show that the firearm is necessary as a condition of continued employment, the court may grant an exemption for a
particular firearm to be in the defendant's possession only during work hours and while traveling to and from work. If a peace
officer's employment and personal safety depend on the ability to carry a firearm, a court may grant an exemption that allows the
officer to carry a firearm on or off duty, but only if the court finds, after a mandatory psychological examination of the peace officer,
that the officer does not pose a threat of harm. (Code Civ. Proc., § 527.9(f).)
3. ENFORCING THIS ORDER IN CALIFORNIA
• This order must be enforced in California by any law enforcement agency that has received the order or is shown a copy of the
order or has verified its existence on the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS).
• Law enforcement must determine whether the restrained person had notice of the order. If notice cannot be verified, law
enforcement must advise the restrained person of the terms of the order and, if the restrained person fails to comply, must
enforce it. (Fam. Code, § 6383.)

4. CONFLICTING ORDERS-PRIORITIES FOR ENFORCEMENT
If more than one restraining order has been issued, the orders must be enforced according to the following priorities:
a. Emergency Protective Order: If one of the orders is an Emergency Protective Order (form EPO-001) and is more restrictive than
other restraining or protective orders, it has precedence in enforcement over all other orders. (Pen. Code, § 136.2(c)(1)(A).)
b. No-Contact Order: If there is no EPO, a no-contact order that is included in a restraining or protective order has precedence in
enforcement over any other restraining or protective order.
c. Criminal Order: If none of the orders include a no-contact order, a domestic violence protective order issued in a criminal case
takes precedence in enforcement over any conflicting civil court order. (Pen. Code, § 136.2(e)(2).) Any nonconflicting terms of the
civil restraining order remain in effect and enforceable.
d. Family, Juvenile, or Civil Order: If more than one family, juvenile, or other civil restraining or protective order has been issued, the
one that was issued last must be enforced.
5. CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE WITH VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT (VAWA). This protective order meets all Full Faith
and Credit requirements of the Violence Against Women Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2265 (1994). This court has jurisdiction over the parties
and the subject matter, and the restrained person has been afforded notice and a timely opportunity to be heard as provided by the
laws of this jurisdiction. This order is valid and entitled to enforcement in each jurisdiction throughout the 50 United States, the
District of Columbia, all tribal lands, and all U.S. territories, and shall be enforced as if it were an order of that jurisdiction.
