In general, the party who feels he or she requires protection under the law will petition the court for a TPO (“Temporary Protective Order”). This is for those who feel they are under the threat of abuse, stalking, harassment and other types of “threatening” actions. In many cases the judge will grant this temporary order until the hearing that determines the permanency of the order. At this hearing the judge will decide whether to dismiss the entire case or extend the TPO. (Note: A TRO is a “Temporary Restraining Order” and a similar process goes for this.)
After consulting with one of our dedicated attorneys, we will go over your options, strategies and fight the TPO or TRO at the hearing.
