The answer to this questions really on what exactly the restraining order says. Restraining orders typically have a list of specifically prohibitted behavior (don't call, email, tslk, etc.) and they usually have orders prohibitting harassment in general (i.e. do not annoy. alarm, harass, etc.). These orders usually apply to conduct by third parties acting at your request, like using your mom to call the ex wife, etc. The safest thing to do is contact legal counsel in Texas to review the order and get a more definite answer.

No evidence is necessary for a temporary restraining order. What happens is when you go into court and get a restraining order they give a temporary restraining order until trial. You can then push the date back a few times and extend it. Some people would argue this is how you get custody of children in a divorce situation. For a long term restraining order you will need documented cases of abuse.

You should pay for someone to serve him with divorce papers when you file , but if he does not sign, you will end up in court to get the divorce. There may be some requirements regarding the time between filing for divorce and the final decree. The argument will not be particularly about the restraining order, etc. but perhaps about child custody and visitation (if you have children) and that part may not be pleasant. If he is truly dangerous, you may want to consult with someone to get advice on how you should manage this.

Stay with friends or relatives who will keep watch over the child at all times. Obtain a restraining order. Obtain temporary sole custody. Consult an attorney.

No. You must respond to the divorce complaint. A motion is a formal request made to a judge for an order or judgment. A motion for temporary orders for a parenting plan can be filed in a divorce case but it doesn't replace the answer to the divorce complaint.No. You must respond to the divorce complaint.

Husband will have to petition the judge who issued the restraining order against him to modify it to allow face-to-face contact in the presence of a marriage mediator. However, if the other party is adamant and does not wish mediation, it appears futile to petition the judge to order it, however you can always try. The judge who issued the restraining order will have to become involved since it is only he, who can modify it.

Ordinarily, a trial court will enter "temporary orders" for custody, visitation, and child support, while the divorce is pending.

As for the restraining order, it would probably depend on why you felt you needed the restraining order against her. Has she harmed or threatened to harm you? Or do you just want to be single again? As for the children, I can't see any judge giving you a restraining order against them, and may even let the wife take out a restraining order on you for trying to kick her and your innocent children out on the street. That could be considered child abuse, child endangerment or at the very least, neglect. As for filing for divorce, anyone can do that at any time. And keep in mind, you will have to pay child support whether you choose to visit your kids or not. Although, if they are your stepchildren, then you shouldn't have to pay child support on them but, depending on the laws in Texas, you may have to pay spousal support (alimony).

(In the US) If you were legally divorced - you are divorced. There is no such thing as a 'temporary' divorce that lasts for short periods of time.

It depends on what denomination. Pentecostal's are against divorce and remarriage.

According to the "Code of Alabama 1975; Section 30-2-8.1 Waiting period prior to issuance of final judgment of divorce; temporary orders prior to expiration of waiting period. (a) A court shall not enter a final judgment of divorce until after the expiration of 30 days from the date of the filing of the summons and complaint. (b) This section shall not restrict the power of the court to enter any temporary orders necessary prior to the expiration of the waiting period. The temporary orders may include, but shall not be limited to, temporary orders on custody, spousal or child support, visitation, exclusive occupancy of the marital residence, or restraining the parties. (Acts 1996, 1st Ex. Sess., No. 96-51, p. 70, �1.)" Addition: Also remember that after the divorce is final, meaning the Judge has signed the order granting the divorce, both parties must wait 60 days to remarry unless they decide to remarry each other.

Through your attorney, the sheriff's department or a process server. wow a restraining order?! that's pretty harsh. well if your spouse was like really violent or somethin. Mail?

Alimony, if awarded, is part of the divorce decree and so it is not awarded during the divorce proceeding. If the court deems it appropriate and necessary temporary support can be awarded during the divorce process.

Divorce is not a crime. There is not statute of limitations on divorce. A divorce case can be brought at any time against the other party of the marriage.

If one of you already had a temporary mail drop in Las Vegas Nevada for 6 weeks, then divorce is instantaneous.

Custody rulings have nothing to do with who files for the divorce first.

There are no restrictions against remarriage following a divorce decree.

No, they're very different things, though they might overlap in some cases. A restraining order is a court order restraining someone from doing some particular thing. That "thing" might be "coming within 300 feet of a particular other person." A legal separation is, basically, a kind of "trial divorce." It's a general feature that the people involved stop living together, but they don't necessarily have to go out of their way to avoid each other at work or school or whatever (in contrast, a restraining order DOES usually require that). The divorce laws vary considerably from state to state, and sometimes a period of legal separation is mandated before a divorce decree can be obtained.

File charges, kick her out of the house, restraining order for you and the kids, then file for divorce. Restraining order is the key.
