Legal Question in Family Law in California

I was told by my Ex partner that she went to the courthouse and filed a TRO against me. But I have yet to be served with the papers. If I do not get served the TRO does not take effect and I do not have to appear in court until I am served correct?

Thank you for your time...

You should wait until you are served with the TRO before you can oblige by its orders. However, they have minimum notice requirements to serve you, you can be served 5 days before the hearing if they have trouble locating you.

The family law facilitator in your local county can help self represented individuals.

Please contact an attorney in your area prior to taking any legal action.

Good luck,
