Temporary Restraining Orders

A temporary restraining order (TRO) is a court order that is put in place after one party gives testimony, until the court can consider more evidence in the case. In most cases, a TRO lasts for only a few days, until a hearing can be held to determine whether it should become a permanent restraining order. The main requirement for a temporary restraining order generally is that the party requesting the TRO will be immediately harmed in some way — such as financially or physically — if the other party is not restrained. Other requirements for a temporary restraining order typically are procedural, such as the requesting party or an attorney for that party needing to submit the proper paperwork that provides details of the harm that might occur if the TRO is not issued.
