Although many courts hand out ex parte/TRO's like legal candy, it is required that you report your wife's past TRO. This is part of the new transparency regarding human trafficking, marriage brokerage, etc. When I was a law student I worked in a domestic litigation law firm, where it was routine to petition the court for ex parte orders - especially in contentious child-custody cases. As you probably know from experience, it's a racket and often nothing more than a legal chess game. When it's real, everyone knows it - and that's the exception. Because of this fact, I don't think checking the box exposes you to any major red flag or hurdle. Better to divulge than to get denied.
