Is this order is binding on both spouses or one only?? The spouse who took RO against other spouse is responsible of breaching the RO. where to report this breach?
Read the order carefully. It says exactly who it binds. Depends on the wording whether both are prohibited or just the one.
If both are prohibited, then the breach is reported to the authority who issued it.
Now - if you are actually talking about a MOEP - magistrate's order of emergency protection - resulting from a family violence charge - then the only person prohibited is the person against who it was issued - NOT the complainant in the criminal case.
RULES OF THE COURT for 24TH, 135TH, AND 267TH DISTRICT COURTS
Composed of CALHOUN COUNTY, DEWITT COUNTY, GOLIAD COUNTY,
JACKSON COUNTY, REFUGIO COUNTY AND VICTORIA COUNTY
And 377th DISTRICT COURT Composed of VICTORIA are published online. I cursorily scanned them, but saw no reference to a Standing Order applicable to both parties; therefore, I am assuming that the TRO applies only to the other party though such a TRI can be drafted to make it mutual and applicable to both parties (however an attorney representing only the other party likely would only make the TRO applicable to the opposing party). The only authoritative answer will be from a family law counsel looking at the documents. If the other party has committed a criminal offense against you, of course, call the police and make a complaint. The best answer also is to retain family law counsel and file a counter-petition and request a hearing for issuance of a TRO against the other party.
