Can a Court Order Deter Damaging Behavior by My Partner?

A temporary restraining order (TRO) is an emergency court order that requires a party not to take some particular action until a hearing is held. A TRO can include terms to protect your property, your safety, and the safety of your children for the duration of the order. In emergencies, it can also order a parent to stay away from a child until the hearing. However, such orders may not include custody or child support orders and cannot exclude the spouse from their residence. A TRO typically lasts 14 days or until the hearing, whichever approaches sooner.  

Common reasons to file a temporary restraining order

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

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

Note that TROs are often filed and issued in Texas divorce cases. As they prohibit the other spouse from taking a certain action, these orders are not typically driven by the threat of family violence, but rather by the need to keep things as they are — preserving the “status quo” while the divorce is in process. Whether this is a required part of your divorce or a decision you must make will depend on whether you live in Tarrant County, Parker County, or another jurisdiction.
