Cueto v. DozierAnnotate this Case
In 2012, Cueto obtained a two-year domestic violence prevention restraining order against Dozier, the father of her eight-year-old son. Shortly before the order was set to expire, Cueto sought permanent renewal of that order. Following a hearing, the trial court denied Cueto’s request, finding that she had not established an objectively reasonable fear of future abuse by Dozier. The court of appeal reversed and remanded for the trial court to determine whether the restraining order should be renewed for five years or permanently under 14 Fam. Code, 6345(a). While the trial court relied on the fact that Dozier had not violated the order, it should have considered his history of violence and failure to attend anger management classes as required for visitation with his son.
