Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO)
TRO’s, are highly recommended in Texas
family law cases. These orders are usually prepared at the same time as the initial
pleadings. They contain injunctions against both parties. In a divorce
case for example, the injunctions usually relate to the preservation of
property. So, for example, a common injunction would be to prevent either
party from selling, transferring or disposing of any property. This would
deter a party from deciding to sell off a good chunk of the estate and
absconding with the money they get from it. Each party is almost always
prohibited from going on a wild spending spree or incurring massive debt,
in order to ensure the community estate’s integrity.
There can also include injunctions regarding the children. Most courts will order both parties to not withdraw the children from the school they are in or taking them out of state without prior written permission. TRO’s are essentially a ‘status quo’ order, ensuring the preservation of the estate and stability of the children until the court can get the parties to a hearing where evidence and arguments can be presented.
The Length of TRO’s
TRO’s last for only 14 days from the time the judge signs the order. Usually, the judge will sign off on an extension, particularly if there has been a problem in getting the other party served with the case. A temporary orders hearing should be set prior to the expiration of the TRO so the parties can get some temporary relief like support, the use and management of the property, and custody and possession of the children. There will usually be a determination as to whether the injunctions listed in the TRO’s should continue throughout the case. (Usually, they are).
