The Automatic Restraining Order

When a divorce is filed an automatic restraining order comes into place. This is not a restraining order against seeing another person, but rather a restraining order preventing the sale of property.

Once the case is filed the plaintiff in the divorce is legally barred from selling property not in the normal course of business. The restraining order does not take effect for the defendant until s/he receives service of the summons and complaint.
