Although most people think of domestic violence occurring between couples, a domestic relationship can apply to anyone living together, including family members and roommates. If the situation becomes volatile, the alleged victim can seek a temporary restraining order against the individual he or she feels poses a real and dangerous risk to his or her safety. This could be due to aggravated assault, sexual assault, physical violence, choking, stalking or intimidation.

If the alleged victim can prove this risk and the judge grants the temporary restraining order, the accused individual will be immediately ordered to cut off contact with the alleged victim. From there, a second process must be fulfilled to receive a final restraining order.
