Since such orders are specific to the facts of a case, there is no form that will do a good job.
You have two choices. You can try to wing it and possibly mess up badly. Or you can pay a lawyer to draft a proper order. That isn't going to be that expensive.
In most courts proposed orders should be submitted to the other party for review. They may or may not, depending on the court, need two signatures.
There is no form. However, I strongly advise you to have a local attorney look over whatever you prepare to make sure it accurately states what the judge ruled. He/she may have a tough time with this since he/she wasn't there to take notes about what the judge ruled.
