For victims of domestic violence in Buncombe County, the process for obtaining an ex parte (temporary restraining order) is surprisingly fast, and essentially just two steps: once one fills out the necessary paperwork, a judge will review all cases twice a day. Buncombe County is blessed with judges who understand the gravity of domestic violence, something many areas still lack, and those trying to flee dangerous relationships can generally rely on the courts to grant them a temporary order until the case can later be heard in civil court.
