The Restraining Order Process in NJ

domestic violence victim

Restraining orders are among the more serious issues handled by our firm.  Immediately upon its entry by the Superior Court of New Jersey, a restraining order can affect, among other things, a party’s employment, income, housing, custody arrangements, and right to possess weapons.  Since the entry of a restraining order in New Jersey is permanent, the dire consequences can have long lasting effects.  

In addition, the incident giving rise to the entry of the restraining order may, in addition to the restraining order, have criminal consequences.  The violation of a restraining order is a criminal contempt of court and carries with it severe penalties.  If you are either the victim or the defendant in a domestic violence restraining order case, you need representation.  

The consequences are far too serious to try to represent yourself.  If you are involved in a domestic violence case, call us immediately.  In accordance with New Jersey law, the initial hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the entry of the restraining order.  It is imperative that you act quickly to protect your rights.  We are here to assist you.  For more information about the domestic violence process in New Jersey, please click here to be taken to our page entitled Domestic Violence Restraining Orders In New Jersey – The Basics.
