Houston Temporary Restraining Order Attorneys

Putting You & Your Family’s Safety First

Family violence is a devastating reality for millions of Americans every day. Victims of domestic violence, including children, often feel as though their situation is impossible to escape from. However, this absolutely is not the case. The law offers protections for those seeking relief, and you can file for a temporary restraining order which is a restrictive injunction meant to provide an immediate solution for safety concerns before they can be fully addressed before the courts. If you are in need of this protection, rest assured our Houston temporary restraining order lawyers of Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law can provide real-life solutions to even the most impossible circumstances.

What is a TRO?

A temporary restraining order, or TRO, can only be in effect for 14 days. A TRO can be filed by a victim who is related to, lives with, or shares a child with the offender. These orders provide protection for yourself, your children, and your property by restraining the offending individual from partaking in certain behavior. Once a judge grants this temporary protective order, the individual in question will be expected to follow certain conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

  • If you live together, he or she must move out
  • He or she must stay a certain distance away from you, your home, workplace, etc.
  • He or she must cease all contact, including via email or text message

These orders, as implied, are temporary and only meant to pull victims out of an emergency, life-threatening situation. If you are seeking a permanent solution, you must prove a perpetual need for protection against any further abuse or harm from the individual in question.
