What are the Pros and Cons of Filing for Divorce pending TRO hearing in California?
I was recently served with a TRO pending hearing. My wife knew it was inevitable that I am filing for divorce but as always she beat me to the punch by filing a temporary restraining order (with kids) since she is a stay home mom and I am a workaholic dad. Is it possible to file for divorce before the TRO hearing or it's best to wait until the hearing (TRO) is over to determine the outcome (i.e. child/spousal support, etc.). Can someone please give me the logistics of filing before or after the TRO hearing when it comes to divorce. Everything as of now is Pro Per.
Whichever way you go, it would be wise to lawyer up for the DVRO hearing, as a restraining order issued there can affect security clearances, job applications and much more.
