The Court will deal with temporary protective orders quickly. This is a process courts take very seriously as they directly involve one person’s safety and the other person’s liberty. Whether you are attempting to gain a protective order or fighting against having one issued against you, it is important that you hire an attorney who understands the process. This is not a time to represent yourself.

A TPO can be issued if there is a legitimate threat of harm to a person. The process starts by someone filing an application for a protective order. The Court will often grant a thirty day protective order and hold a hearing, within days, to determine if the TPO should be dissolved or if it should be extended beyond the initial 30 days. In determining whether the TPO should be issued, and later extended, the Court will consider whether there is a legitimate threat of harm and will objectively consider all evidence in making that determination.
