Isidora M. v. Silvino M., B256587

In a petition brought pursuant to the Domestic Violence Prevention Act (DVPA), Family Code section 6200 et seq., the trial court's issuance of a five-year mutual restraining order is reversed where the court erred in making the order mutual in the absence of an affirmative request by the husband for such protection, as the court may issue a mutual domestic violence restraining order under section 6305 only if both parties have filed requests for such relief, so as to give the requisite notice to the opposing party.
