Temporary Restraining Orders

Temporary Restraining Orders need to be taken seriously. There can be serious ramifications when a TRO is ordered. A TRO can prevent you from owning a firearm, from going to certain places, sometimes your own home, calling certain people, and seeing particular people. TRO violations can result in arrest and criminal proceedings against you. Contact us immediately to schedule an appointment and we will start to gather the necessary information to defend against a TRO filed against you or to file a TRO on your behalf.

Family Court Temporary Restraining Orders:

You are eligible for a Family Court TRO if the parties involved are “family or household members” or those individuals in a “dating relationship” and have been the victim of physical, emotional, or verbal abuse or have been threatened with abuse.

District Court Temporary Restraining Orders:

These are considered civil matters between parties who are not family, living together, or in a dating relationship. Unlike Family Court TROs, a district court judge may order that the losing party pay the prevailing party’s attorney fees and costs.

If a temporary restraining order has been filed against you or you need to file one against another party, let us help. Schedule a consultation here.
