Domestic violence is a phenomenon that occurs with great frequency, leaving behind more than one victim and creating an uncertain future for all parties. In New Jersey, Temporary Restraining Orders enter without notice to the accused offender. Final Restraining Orders enter only after a hearing where the alleged victim and accused are both given notice and opportunity to present their case.

A Final Restraining Order in New Jersey is permanent. However, it is possible to remove a Restraining Order. Pleadomestic-se call this office to explore those options.
