Divorce Restraining Order Lawyer

Restraining Orders

If from the beginning of the divorce process, the party filing for divorce feels that there is a risk that the other party may tamper with the community funds or is acting in a threatening or harassing manner, a request for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) is issued and filed with the court at the time the divorce petition is filed. A hearing is set at the same time. The divorce petition, the TRO and the Notice of Hearing must be formally served to the other party to ensure to the court that the party knows about the proceedings.

Protective Orders

If family violence exists, there may be a need for a Protective Order. While the process is similar, filing timeframes and evidence for a Protective Order are more complex. Discussion with a family law attorney is needed in this situation and if the circumstances warrant it, police should be involved.
