How Restraining Orders Work in Texas
If a spouse or cohabitant has suffered bodily harm or the imminent threat of such harm, he or she can file a temporary restraining order against the other individual involved. The alleged aggressor must vacate the premises immediately. Restraining orders can prevent the accused abuser from calling or otherwise contacting the victim, from buying a gun, from living in the same home as the victim, and from coming within 100 yards of the victim, the victim’s home, or the victim’s place of work. Individuals who violate a restraining order can be automatically arrested and face fines and jail time as a result of a misdemeanor or felony charge.
