What is a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO)?

A TRO is a legal document that orders a batterer to stay a certain distance from you, and to stop all contact and harassment. If the batterer lives with you and you want him or her to move out, you can request that in your restraining order application. You may also request that you have temporary custody of your children.
