Exercise Extreme Caution when using many of our free forms - or any legal material. While they may provide general ideas on format & content, validity requirements can and do vary greatly from state to state. Many MUST be Properly Modified for your own location and circumstances. (Hint: If in doubt it's usually safer to include unneeded clauses than to leave out necessary ones. . . . but it's even safer to consult a competent source or use current, state specific ones like ours mentioned below.) Also, we urge people (and lawyers too) to read our Relying On Legal Info FAQ.

Judge

[The two orders in this form (an order to show cause and a temporary restraining order) can be prepared as two separate documents if desired. Stating the proposed orders separately in one document, as shown in this form, permits the court to modify or delete terms of the restraining order by striking or interlineating certain language without altering the order to show cause. The restraining order should be narrowly drawn so that it will not be declared void by a reviewing court as interfering with constitutionally protected rights or being otherwise overbroad.]
