Why Do I Need a Temporary Restraining Order in a Divorce in Texas?

by Ricardo Barrera

In Texas, one may request a court to restrict the destruction or waste of property and to preserve the peace prior to the other party being served with a petition for divorce through a temporary restraining order. 

In most cases, temporary restraining orders are misunderstood and often violated. They only last for 14 days, unless extended, and only until the judge can hear evidence as to why restriction should remain in place.

Here are some of the things that can be asked for during a divorce:

1) Exclusive possession of a residence;

2) Exclusive possession of a vehicle;

3) Temporary child support;

4) Custody or a visitation schedule;

5) Orders that protect and preserve the community property;

6) Geographic restrictions and much more.
