The husband sought a restraining order against his wife under the Domestic Violence Protection Act (DVPA) in Family Code section 6200 et seq. The family court issued a mutual restraining order against both parties. The appellate court reversed the order against the husband because the wife did not file a separate written request for such an order as required by Family Code section 6305, subdivision (a)(1).
