TRO, what grounds are needed?
« on: Nov 22, 2003, 08:07:07 PM »
Dear Soc,

     I am in Iowa, not sure if that helps or hinders me, in getting an answer from you.  But I will try anyways, even if its a basic answer, that would be great.  So here goes.

1.  What are the grounds to obtain a TRO, on behalf of the child, against the other parent?

2.  What happens after you file the nessecary papers to obtain this TRO?


See, just basic questions, but I am in need of the answers.


Thank you so much,  Lissa68

You must show that you or the child will suffer great or irreparable harm if the TRO is not granted.

You must obtain an ex-parte hearing with the court (one party present). You give your testimony, and the court issues and order for the other party to appear and show cause why the TRO should not remain in force. Another hearing is scheduled to occur within 21-30 days. If the other party successfully challenges your motion, the TRO is set aside, otherwise it remains in force until final judgment, or until further orders of the court.
