Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

Domestic violence restraining order can be issued for habitual drug use by a spouse, physical abuse or harassment.
Thus, as long as you can prove that he is abusing drugs and becomes violent/dangerous, or at least that he makes you feel endangered, you would have grounds to seel the TRO.
