A Temporary Restraining Order is a legal document that is granted by a division Judge and may prohibit an abuser from coming within 100 yards of where you are, as well as keep them from contacting you via phone, email, text, or via third party. A Temporary Restraining Order is set for hearing within a 21-day period and remains effective until this hearing date. The Court may then extend, dismiss, or continue the matter accordingly.
Individuals who wish to file for a Temporary Restraining Order may do so here at the Clerk’s office and a physical address on the abuser must be provided to serve the other party with a court date and copy of the Order. Please note that the clerk’s office can only provide forms Pursuant to the Louisiana’s Domestic Violence Statues LA R.S. 46:2131, LA R.S. 46:2151, LA R.S. 46:2171, LA R.S. 46:2181, and LA Ch. C 1564 for Children’s code.
Our staff will be available to provide you with the necessary form but are not able to give legal advice. Though it is not required that you hire an attorney, it is strongly encouraged to seek one for legal advice.
