Heard brought with her photos of her alleged injuries, including one that appears to show her with a large bruise around her eye.
That photo was reportedly taken on Saturday after Heard alleges that Depp hit her in the face with his iPhone and then fled when police arrived on the scene according to TMZ.
Heard was ultimately granted a temporary order by the judge, who ruled that Depp must remain at least 100 yards away from Heard until their next hearing, which is scheduled for late June.
She was also granted the right to live in the family home, but failed in her bid for sole custody of one of the couple’s dogs.
The judge ruled against Heard however in her attempt to collect spousal support from Depp and have him cover her attorney fees.

Heard looked stoic as she left the courthouse on Friday, dressed down in a black dress and wearing no make-up.
The bruise that she alleges was the result of Depp’s attack could still be seen on her face.
She did not stop to speak with reporters or members of the public and instead rushed into her waiting car.
Her lawyer briefly stopped to tell the crowd that her client was ‘being very brave.’
Once she got into the car however cameras captured her as she broke down in tears and began to sob in the backseat of the vehicle.
Heard claims that Depp, 52, offered her money to keep the incident that occurred on Saturday quiet, but she instead made the decision to file for divorce that Monday.
That was not an ‘isolated event’ either according to a source close to the couple, who told People; ‘This was only the latest incident.’
She also has a video that allegedly shows Depp beating her according to TMZ.
Depp was not present in court on Friday as he is off promoting his new film Alice Through the Looking Glass and preparing for a performance with his band Hollywood Vampires at the Rock in Rio Lisboa concert in Portugal.
He was represented during the proceedings on Friday by his attorney Laura Wasser.

TMZ reports that Depp ‘shattered various objects’ during the incident on Saturday, which occurred at the couple’s apartment.
Heard was on the phone with a friend during the alleged fight and when Depp began to pull her phone away from her she told the person on the other line to call the police.
Depp was gone by the time they arrived but investigators did take a statement from Heard and write up a report.
The alleged fight occurred just one day after the death of Depp’s mother Betty Sue Palmer, who passed away last Friday.
Heard filed for divorce after just 15 months of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split in her petition.
Depp responded to Heard’s petition on Wednesday asking that the court rule he should not be required to pay spousal support and requesting that his estranged wife pay her own attorney fees.
The couple does not appear to have a prenuptial agreement.
A representative for Depp said in a statement on Thursday; ‘Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life.
‘Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.’
Depp and Heard began dating in 2012 after meeting on the set of The Rum Diary.
The Oscar-nominated actor had just ended his relationship with French model and actress Vanessa Paradis after 14 years together and two children – daughter Lily-Rose, now 17, and a 14-year-old son John who goes by Jack.
Those are Depp’s only two children.
The actor largely avoided the spotlight during his years with Paradis, who he first met on the set of their film The Ninth Gate.
The couple and their children had no problem avoiding the press either thanks to Depp’s purchase of Little Hall’s Pond Cay, a private island located in the Bahamas that he purchased in 2004 for just under $4million.
Depp and Heard also made use of the island during their relationship, with the pair hosting their wedding party at the 45-acre tropical getaway after an intimate ceremony for close friends and family in Los Angeles.
It was the second marriage for Depp, who married Lori Anne Allison in 1983 and then split with the makeup artist two years later right around the time his career began to take off following his big screen debut in the horror classic Nightmare on Elm Street.
Depp rebounded from his divorce by starting a relationship with Sherilyn Fenn, spending just over three years with the actress and even getting engaged before the ultimately decided to part ways.
Next he began a brief but intense romance with Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey, who he also became engaged to at one point.
Then, Depp met Winona Ryder.
The couple began dating in August 1989, when Ryder was 17 and Depp was 26, and became engaged the following July.
In a true sign of his affection Depp also got a tattoo on his arm that read; ‘Winona Forever.’
That tattoo got a bit of an edit however after the couple split three years into their relationship, with Depp dropping the end of his ex’s first name so it read; ‘Wino Forever.’
In the years between his split from Ryder and his relationship with Paradis, Depp found himself a frequent tabloid target thanks to his love affair with another high profile lady, supermodel Kate Moss.
The British beauty was still a teenager when she began dating Depp, and the two made headlines thanks to the tumultuous nature of their relationship.
It was during this time that he was arrested and charged with criminal mischief after an incident in September 1994 at the Mark Hotel in New York City.
Police were called to the hotel around 5:30am and Depp was cuffed and taken in after being accused of smashing the furniture and glass inside his room, where he was staying with Moss.
The charges against him were eventually dropped after he agreed to pay back the hotel for the just under $10,000 in damages he caused during his tirade.
THE JOHNNY DEPP AND AMBER HEARD DIARIES: A TIMELINE OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP
Heard, 30, submitted court documents to end her 15-month marriage to Depp on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking spousal support
The pair, who met on set of 2011 The Rum Diary, are romantically linked shortly after Depp’s split from his from long-term love Vanessa Paradis. Amber, who is bisexual, previously dated Tasya van Ree.
Amber called off their romance, but Johnny wooed her back with a personally penned poem and a bouquet of roses every day throughout the month of September to convince her to give him another chance, Page Six reported at the time. His plan eventually worked and she flew out to his private island, Little Hall’s Pond Cay in the Bahamas, for a mini vacation.
The couple move in together after Depp forked out on a $16 million ranch in Nashville, Tennessee, as a love nest for his new girlfriend.
Amber is spotted with a black pearl and diamond ring on her engagement finger at LA restaurant Ago and friends later confirmed they plan to wed.
Johnny raves about his fiance. He told Today.com: ‘She’s a wonderful girl. She’s sharp as a tack. A southern belle and sweet as can be, and very good for me.’ Later that month he reveals he wants to have more children. He told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I love kids. I have two, and they’re perfect. Man, I’d make 100. But I’ve got the easy gig, right?’
Johnny appeared drunk at the Hollywood Film Awards, slurring his way through an embarrassing speech on stage. Amber was apparently mortified with the sloppy display, with sources saying she thought he’d made a ‘fool’ of himself.
Insiders claim their relationship is in trouble. A source close to the pair told People: ‘Johnny is crazy in love with Amber, but there is turmoil in the relationship.’
The pair press ahead with their marriage, legally tying the knot with her at their home in Los Angeles on February 3 so his ailing mother can attend. The following weekend, they exchanged vows again on his private island in the Bahamas, Little Hall’s Pond Cay.
Johnny injures his hand in Australia and returns to the U.S. for surgery, delaying production of the film.
Johnny fails to show up on the Australian set of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’, where he was expected to resume filming. Production on the movie has been reshuffled so they can work without him.
Sources claim Johnny and Amber have started ‘fighting a lot’, but they are pictured together in Brisbane, Australia, on April 20.
Australian authorities threaten to kill Johnny and Amber’s dogs. Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce has revealed they just 50 hours to remove his two Yorkshire terrier pooches from the country or they will be ‘destroyed. The pair failed to adhere to quarantine laws and instead ‘snuck’ the pooches in on a private jet. The next day, Depp jets the two pet dogs back to the US.
Amber describes herself as ‘fiercely independent.’ When asked about married life, she told Elle magazine: ‘Nothing is a dramatic change. We’ve been together for a long time now, so it’s been a fairly organic process. I have a fiercely independent spirit. I fall in love [with Johnny] again and again.’ She added: ‘We have a fairly normal, um [relationship]. I guess, we do our best. He has his life, and I have mine, and our challenge is to be able to find time to be together. We’re very happy. Very.’
Amber is charged over smuggling her dogs into Australia. She is summoned to appear in court in Queensland after illegally smuggled their Yorkshire terriers into the country on a private plane. She is charged with two counts of illegal importation and one count of producing a false document after breaking the country’s quarantine laws.
Amber Heard’s dog smuggling charges are dropped after she pleads guilty to supplying false documents. Amber and her ‘Black Mass’ actor husband attended Southport Magistrate’s Court in Queensland, where she admitted to lying on her arrival card on entering the country. Her lawyer told the court she was under the impression Johnny’s staff had dealt with the two dog’s travel forms when they arrived in April. He also claimed that Amber had ‘nothing in it’ to fill in the forms incorrectly and that it was a ‘terrible mistake’.
