Injunctive Orders and Related Procedures

At the beginning of a family law proceeding, various orders restraining the transfer, encumbrance, or other disposition of community, quasi-community, or separate property are contained in the Automatic Temporary Restraining Orders (ATROs) set forth on the summons. The ATROs are effective against the petitioner when the petition is signed, and are effective against the respondent when the respondent is served. Some ATROs restrain the disposition of property without the written consent of the adversely affected party or a court order, “except in the usual course of business or for the necessities of life.” Fam. Code §§ 233, 2040.
