What Does a Temporary Protective Order Cover?

Temporary protective orders (TPOs) do more than order your spouse to stay away from you and the kids. They may:

  • Give you full possession of your residence or household and exclude your spouse
  • Require your spouse to provide you and other members of the household with suitable alternative housing
  • Grant you temporary custody of the children and set up visitation rights
  • Allow you to retrieve your personal property if the other party has not been evicted
  • Make support payments for the kids
  • Make support payments to you
  • Award legal fees to one or both of you
  • Order the violent person to receive psychiatric or psychological services
