A temporary restraining order (TRO) is a short-term court order a judge issues which prohibits an individual from being in contact with someone. These court orders usually last for a short period of time involving cases such as child abuse, harassment, or domestic abuse.

However, there may be a discovery that the defendant suffers a loss or a form of hardship caused by the TRO. To save the defendant from loses or hardships, the court can require the plaintiff to file a TRO surety bond.

Many courts require a Temporary Restraining Order surety bond during the course of a litigating case. When a plaintiff asks the court to require the defendant to prevent or to perform a certain act, this bond is required. With this bond, the defendant is protected against any loss if the court decides the restraining order should have never been granted. If that happens, it is typically because the defendant wins the court case. The bond protects the defendant, so if there are any losses or hardships, the plaintiff is responsible for covering them.

Another term for this surety bond is a Plaintiff Injunction Surety Bond.
