Most often, individuals will be seeking either a protective order or restraining order.
- A protective order is designed to protect an individual from abuse.
- A restraining order can have a larger focus, possibly preventing one spouse from frivolous spending or disposing of marital assets during a divorce proceeding. A restraining order can also be used to obtain temporary child custody.
- A temporary protective order can typically be granted on the same day it is filed. The court will then schedule a hearing for a protective order.
