Temporary Orders Affidavits

COLUMBUS CUSTODY LAWYERWhat is the difference between temporary orders and temporary restraining orders?

Temporary Restraining Orders

In family law, sometimes temporary restraining orders are made at the beginning of the case.  These orders are general orders and usually are not specific to the facts of a certain case.  In custody cases between parents who were not married, they are usually limited to an order that the minor child cannot be permanently removed from the state of Ohio.  In divorce cases, temporary restraining orders require that the other party refrain from harassing you at work or at home, selling, hiding or giving away assets, incurring debt in your name, changing beneficiaries of life insurance, canceling health insurance and taking the minor child and permanently leaving the state.

COLUMBUS CUSTODY LAWYERWe  have never yet seen a form which contains all of the information which should be submitted with temporary orders affidavits.  Especially when there are children involved, it is nearly impossible to create the perfect form for temporary orders affidavits.  This means that in addition to whatever local forms a county uses for temporary orders affidavits (if any ), the party to the litigation also needs to submit narrative affidavits and/or give testimony at a hearing, depending on the local court’s preferred procedure.
