The judge granted my temporary restraining order. It's a Civil Harassment case. I was given two copies of the CH-130 form. (I assume that the other copy is to be mailed to the restrained person? The restrained person lives out of state.) For the "other" box in the CH-250 form, what "other" document(s) do I need to have mailed? Does that portion need to be filled out? Can I have someone that lives with me (like a relative?) serve by mail? If so, how should it be done? Or is it better to have a process server mail the documents instead?
The Temporary Restraining Order needs to be personally served by a thirty party such as a process server on the restrained party. You cannot serve the Temporary Restraining Order and Notice of hearing by mail. Best of luck!

I agree with Mr. Tokar, a Temporary Restraining Order must be personally served. In addition to a process server, you should check with your local police agencies regarding service as many sheriff departments have a civil bureau dedicated to service of court documents. Should you require further assistance in this matter, I highly recommend you contact counsel in your area. Good luck.
