Q: Can I file a tpo on a parent that was arrested for assault on her court ordered week and had an outstanding warrant

She was arrested for assault on her court ordered week for premeditated assault. She brought the kids to my house pretending she had to work, told the person she was going to assault she would be back to “smash her face in” went back and assaulted her. She was arrested and had an outstanding warrant for assault. I want to file a tpo to keep my kids from her pending results of the current charges.

A: A TPO is filed if their fear of threat of domestic violence, harassment or stalking, workplace harassment, sexual assault or child abuse.

If you are in this situation, then you should consider filing a TPO.
