Temporary Protective Orders
It is not uncommon for parties contemplating a divorce or separation to seek a protective order from the court. A Temporary Protective Order (TPO) can be issued upon the application of one party who can allege an act of family violence, battery, or stalking.
These orders can be granted the same day they are applied for and ensure the offending party is immediately ejected from the home. TPOs can also make provisions for child support and child custody. A protective order can have a serious effect on the financial resources of the ejected party.
