My question involves restraining orders in the State of: California. I am seriously considering filing a restraining order against my son, who will be 15 in Aug. I have sole custody & no family to take him. He has become increasing violent & verbally abusive over the last 5 years. I have tried getting him help but mental health services in my county are horrible. Not a lot to chose from. He is currently in counseling, seeing a psych & on psych meds for being bipolar. He has been in counseling for almost 3 years now. I am afraid that sooner or later an altercation with him will result in someone being seriously injured or killed (probably me) and someone going to jail (probably him). I really don't want to see that happen but I am at a lose as to what to do. If I get a restraining order, where will he live? Is that even an option if there is no family to take him in?
He is currently in Juvenile Hall for assaulting me last night.
