Filing for Immediate Restraining Orders: Divorce Cases and Petition to Change Parenting Plan Cases

Authored By: Northwest Justice Project LSC Funded

This packet will help you ask the court for immediate orders giving you certain rights and/or protections between the time your family law case starts and the date it is final. It is different from a Motion for Temporary Family Law Orders: you are asking for a court order to take effect immediately, usually with little or no notice to the other party. Packet #3214EN
