Temporary Restraining Orders — Fort Worth Lawyer

Many divorces are emotionally intense, and a person’s behavior can be rash and unpredictable when he or she is under stress. If you are uncertain about how your spouse will react when you file for divorce, it is worth considering what measures you should take to protect your rights and interests.

Do You Need A Court Order To Deter Damaging Behavior By Your Spouse?

Temporary restraining orders (TROs) are often filed and issued in Texas divorce cases. It is important to recognize that these orders are not typically driven by the threat of family violence, but by the need to keep things as they are — preserving “status quo” while the divorce is in process. Whether this is a required aspect of filing for divorce or a decision you must make may depend on whether you live in Tarrant County, Parker County or another jurisdiction.

Common reasons that you may choose to file a temporary restraining order include:

  • Concern that you need to keep your spouse from moving with your kids or otherwise preventing you from having contact with them
  • Financial concerns such as any risk that your divorcing spouse will squander or try to conceal marital property and assets
