1. Have the ex parte order served. Although the order is in effect from the moment it is issued, it cannot be made permanent unless the person you want restrained has proper legal notice.
2. Prepare for your hearing. Since your hearing typically is scheduled within a couple of weeks of the date you filed your petition, you don't have much time to prepare your case.
3. Appear on your hearing date. If you don't appear on the date of your hearing, the judge will dismiss your petition and your temporary order will not be made permanent.
4. Present your case. Since you filed the initial petition, you will have the opportunity to tell the judge your story first. Speak only to the judge, rather than the respondent.
5. Listen to the other side. If the person you want restrained has appeared at the hearing, he or she will have an opportunity to speak to the judge as well.
6. Receive your permanent order. If the judge decides it is warranted based on everything presented, he or she will make your ex parte order permanent. In addition to extending the period of protection provided by the ex parte order, your full order also can include an award of child custody, child support, possession of property, or spousal support, if any of those are applicable to your situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the criteria for a restraining order?

A restraining order, also called a protective order, is a legal order issued by a court requiring a person who is a threat to stay away from you or risk arrest. Restraining order requirements and procedures vary from state to state, but all restraining orders are issued to stop another person from harming or harassing you.

What are valid reasons for a restraining order?

Crimes such as assault, battery, rape, kidnapping and other violent crimes that cause physical and emotional pain, distress and fear are often justifiable reasons for a court-sanctioned protection order. Aside from the victim, family members, partners, friends or their representative may file for the restraining order on their behalf.

What are grounds for a restraining order?

Permanent Restraining Order. A permanent restraining order comes into existence after a judge or magistrate has ruled that it is necessary on the grounds that the incidents listed on the petition by the victim--typically verbal, emotionally and physical abuse--have been proven to be true and that the safety of the victim is at risk.

What are the different types of restraining orders?

In general, there are three different types of restraining order forms: those for temporary orders, emergency orders, and permanent orders.
