The Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic (CROC) is a collaborative city-wide project which helps domestic violence survivors in San Francisco get restraining orders against their abusers. It is the main way in which women in San Francisco obtain restraining orders. At CROC, clients meet one-on-one with an interviewer who then prepares the paperwork necessary to file for a restraining order. CROC files the client's restraining order request at the Family Court and obtains a Temporary Restraining Order that lasts until a hearing. CROC attorneys accompany clients to their restraining order hearings and arrange for interpreters if necessary. At the hearing, the Court can make a Restraining Order that lasts for up to five (5) years.
