Am I Entitled to a Hearing before an Injunction is Issued?

A temporary injunction is issued based upon the Affidavit of the person seeking it, there is no hearing and it is good for at least 15 days. After a temporary injunction is served upon the respondent a hearing will be held within 15 days. At the hearing, the Petitioner must prove by a preponderance of evidence (it is more likely than not) that she/he is in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence.
