Temporary Restraining Orders During COVID-19 in Divorces and Custody Matters

by Ricardo Barrera

In Texas, one often requests a temporary restraining order with most divorce filings to keep the peace, protect the property of the marriage, and request child support or visitation. 

Also, one may a request temporary restraining order in a custody case or modification of court orders to protect against one moving away with the child or putting the child in danger. However, during this time of COVID-19, one can request additional orders from the court relating to the health and safety of the child. For example, one can include a request for orders that the child be maintained under strict CDC guidelines, that if anyone in the household gets sick, the child be turned over to the other parent, and one can further define safety measures to reduce exposure.

Times have changed, and it’s very important that an attorney change with them.
