Are There Rules That We Have To Follow During The Divorce? Overview of the Automatic Temporary Restraining Orders

Once a divorce is filed and served, there are temporary restraining orders (rules prohibiting both of you from doing certain things) that go into effect automatically.  when the divorce process begins. These “ATROS” are on the reverse side of the Summons form and cover protections regarding minor children, insurance, property and instruments that transfer property at death. For example, neither of you will be allowed to take your minor children out of state without the other spouse’s written permission or a court order. Nor will either of you, in most instances, be allowed to cancel or change the beneficiaries on your insurance policies or transfer property. And you will be required to notify your spouse before any out-of-the-ordinary spending.
