Domestic Violence Restraining Orders / Temporary Restraining Orders (TROs)

About Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is a criminal offense that may be designed as any form of abuse or violence against a family member, spouse, ex-spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, parent of a shared child or person you live with. This may take on many forms: physical abuse, emotional abuse, child endangerment, neglect, sexual abuse and child abuse.
What is a Restraining Order?
A restraining order may place different restrictions upon the person accused of domestic violence, including prohibiting him or her from contacting the victim in any way, of coming within a certain distance of the victim and of committing any further abuse against the victim. A violation of a restraining order or temporary restraining order is a serious criminal offense that may result in imprisonment and other penalties if the offender is convicted.
