What is a Temporary Restraining Order?

A Temporary Restraining Order is the Order a victim of an act of domestic violence must first obtain in order to eventually obtain a Final Restraining Order. The TRO restrains the offender from having any contact with the victim at home or at work.  The victim can apply for the Temporary Restraining Order with the police, at the local courthouse, or where they are being sheltered.  The alleged offender is not present when the TRO is applied for at the courthouse.  If the victim is granted the TRO, the Final Restraining Order Hearing is scheduled within 10 days.  The offender must leave the residence if the parties are living together.
