Temporary Restraining Orders

If you have reasonable concerns or fears about a spouse or other family member due to threats, stalking, harassment, or negligent behavior, you can request a temporary restraining order (TRO). A TRO is an emergency court order that protects you and prevents the abuser from taking certain actions until a full hearing can be held.

A TRO can:

  • Include orders regarding your property, your safety, and your children’s safety
  • Order a parent to stay away from a child
  • Prevent an abuser from coming near you or contacting you
  • Force an abuser to move out of your shared home

Our domestic violence attorneys in Houston can help you file a Motion for Temporary Restraining Order so that you can get the protection you and your loved ones need. Keep in mind that a TRO will only be approved by a judge in an emergency situation.

Protective Orders

If you or your child has been physically abused or threatened by a family member, you can apply for a protective order (PO). There are a few different kinds of POs for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and human trafficking.

A PO prevents the abuser from:

  • Hurting, threatening, or harassing you
  • Approaching you at home, work, or school
  • Contacting you
  • Carrying a gun (even if they have a license)

Representing the Accused

If you have been served with a TRO, it is in your best interest to respect and comply with the motion/order and to seek legal representation right away. Our domestic violence lawyers in Houston can represent you at the hearing, protect your rights, keep you informed, and help ensure that you do not take any action to worsen your situation.
