The mission of the Connecticut Judicial Branch is to serve the interests of justice and the public by resolving matters brought before it in a fair, timely, efficient and open manner.

Procedure for the Remote Filing of Temporary Restraining Orders

by Roy, Christopher


We have updated our Law about Domestic Violence web page with a link to the procedure for the remote filing of temporary restraining orders. The new procedure page states that "[d]uring the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Judicial Branch has established a procedure to file applications for temporary restraining orders ('TROs') and civil protection orders ('CPOs') without coming to the courthouse."

The Law about Domestic Violence web page also includes links to Domestic Violence FAQs, relevant statutes and Office of Legislative Research reports, and our legal research guide on domestic violence and civil protection orders.
