A TRO issued if a judge is satisfied by your domestic violence complaint, thus a TRO is issued based solely on the input of the victim. A TRO provides the same relief to the victim as a FRO; however, a TRO only lasts until the final hearing..
The defendant, your abuser, does not have to be notified or present in court for the issuance of a TRO. Following the issuance of a TRO, a final hearing will be scheduled. The FRO is usually scheduled within 10 days of issuance of the TRO. If the FRO is adjourned typically the TRO protections will be continued until the date of the hearing.
An FRO is only issued after the court hears from the victim and the defendant. The FRO is then issued indefinitely until there is another order of the court.
