Money is tight for a lot of people.  When you hire an attorney to represent you, the attorney will answer all of your questions, prepare documents, and examine witnesses during the trial. Generally, attorney fees for defending a restraining order anywhere in California ranges from $3,000 to $8,000.  While this office accepts monthly payments, for some, this is a great amount of money.
