Sec. 655. Temporary order of protection
(a) Upon the filing of a petition or counter-claim under this article, the court for good cause shown may issue a temporary order of protection which may contain any of the provisions authorized on the making of an order of protection under section six hundred fifty-six of this article.
(b) A temporary order of protection is not a finding of wrongdoing.
(c) The court may issue or extend a temporary order of protection ex parte or on notice simultaneously with the issuance of a warrant directing that the respondent be arrested and brought before the court pursuant to section six hundred seventy-one of this article.
(d) The court shall not require anyone seeking a temporary order of protection under this section to first request that child protective services investigate the allegations or to first request permission to file a petition under article ten of this act.
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, an order of protection, or temporary order of protection where applicable, may be entered against a former spouse and persons who have a child in common, regardless of whether such persons have been married or have lived together at any time, or against a member of the same family or household as defined in subdivision one of section eight hundred twelve of this act.
