If you have been physically or emotionally abused or feel threatened by your spouse or significant
other, you need to file for a temporary restraining order (TRO). A TRO order has to be approved by a
judge. It is effective for about 21 days and it forbids the other person to have no contact with you.
The TRO is only temporary and if you want to extend the TRO, the judge has to grant a permanent
order. A permanent injunction can help protect your safety long-term.

and that gives rise to false allegations. We can work hard on your behalf to expose such allegations if
that is the case. It is important to understand that simply because the judge granted a temporary order,
it does not mean that your case is over. Usually judges grant such temporary order ex parte based on
the testimony or affidavit of the alleged victim. In a subsequent hearing, you will have your chance to
dispute and fight these allegations.
