What are Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctions?

A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) is an order from the Court to protect parties, their assets, or children. The order is typically entered to enjoin one party or the other from taking certain actions, such as removing the children from school, or dissipating a marital asset. The party seeking a TRO has the burden of showing that substantial and irreparable harm will result if the order is not entered. However, the relief can be granted quickly because the waiting period for appearing before a Judge is shortened once the request is filed.
