Proposed Amendment to Local Rule 24
The Domestic Relations Division of the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas is requesting comments regarding proposed Local Rule 24 (Ex Parte Temporary
Restraining Orders). The proposed rule is expanded to apply to mutual restraining
orders and ex parte temporary restraining orders. The rule provides more
clarity as to the procedure and requirements for obtaining and dissolving
restraining orders, particularly third parties, and makes clear that spouses
restrained from returning to the marital residence are restrained from residing
in the marital residence. Under the proposed rule, the Law Department
will reject temporary restraining orders not in compliance with restraining
order guidelines and will no longer correct judgment entries by interlineation.

The Court will accept comments regarding the rule amendment through October 12, 2018. Please direct any comments to:
