Yes you can hire a lawyer. Look for an attorney who handles domestic violence cases. It is not unusual that the TRO is sought to prepare for a divorce. If you believe a divorce is in the offering then you should speak to a divorce lawyer.
I received a ticket for consumption of open alcohol as a passenger and I spoke with the officer and he said that no points would be added to my license nor would it go on my record.
