Temporary restraining orders

A temporary restraining order is probably the most powerful legal tool for stopping domestic violence. The order is a decree given by a court that requires the violent person to leave you alone. The order may require that the person stay away from your home, where you work, your children’s school or other places that you frequently visit. You will go in front of a judge and present any evidence of abuse, such as police records or photos. A witness to the violence could be brought forth to testify. Most judges recognize that domestic violence can happen at any time and therefore are available after their work hours to issue temporary restraining orders.
