A protective order is imposed while a divorce is pending, and best used as a code of conduct for parties who have been at odds. Evidence does not need to be provided to the court.

The typical protective order contains provisions pertaining to community assets, homestead bills, education of children, agreements not to remove a child from the state, and an agreement that the parties will not harass each other.

An injunction provides longer-term protection from abuse actions such as stalking, intimidation, harassment and terroristic threats. To support these allegations, evidence will need to be shown to the court. The more intrusive and extensive the injunction, the greater the burden of evidence needed.
