Advantages and Disadvantages
The advantage of a TRO is that it can be done at the last minute just before the Mesquite house is actually auctioned off by the lender.
In addition, it does not require the houseowner to declare bankruptcy and thus often both a bankruptcy and foreclosure can be avoided. Once the TRO is filed, the auction is stopped or nullified until the lender has the TRO lifted.
The disadvantage to filing a TRO is that it costs money and is only a temporary delay.
