As soon as the Petition is filed, an automatic injuction automatically goes into effect for the protection of the parties. This injunction covers both spouses. The automatic orders are: 1.The Children shall not be taken from the state for any reason without agreement of the of the parties or an Order of the Court; 2.Each party shall not disturb or harass the other; 3.Property of the marriage shall not be transferred, encumbered, concealed, or in any way disposed of without consent, except in the usual course of business or for the necessities of life; and 4.No health, homeowner's, renter's, automobile or life insurance policies which provide coverage to either of the parties or the minor children or that names either of the parties or the minor children as a beneficiary may be cancelled or modified or allowed to lapse due to nonpayment of premiums except with 14 days advance notification and the written consent of the other party or an order of the Court.

If either party violates the automatic injuction the Court has the power to enforce it's orders by ordering compliance, jail time for contempt of the Orders etc.
