Restraining Order & Injunctions

People may be subject to a Wisconsin restraining order for a variety of reasons, but such orders usually occur in cases of domestic violence, stalking, harassment, child abuse, and elder abuse.  A judge has three options when issuing restraining orders:

  • 72 hour no-contact order: typically following a domestic violence case, this order is taken out immediately after an arrest and is limited to only 72 hours.
  • Temporary Restraining Order (TRO): TROs are often filed for immediate protection.  This order lasts 2 weeks or until a court hearing takes place. This is a temporary solution until a permanent injunction can be issued.  Once a TRO is granted by a court, you will also be given a hearing date for an injunction hearing.
  • Injunction: the plaintiff must appear in court for this hearing. An injunction is a more permanent order and can be effective for up to 4 years. Having a skilled attorney on your side throughout the restraining order process is critical to a strong defense.
