Relationships can be complicated, especially during periods of disagreement. If you feel your safety is threatened by domestic violence, you need to seek protection immediately. The first step to take may be to seek a temporary restraining order, which will protect you legally for a limited period of time. After that, an attorney can help you create a plan to find permanent legal protection, safety and peace of mind.

Compassionate Representation Will Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard

There are two basic types of restraining orders in New Jersey. The first is the temporary ex parte restraining order (or TRO) and the second is the final restraining order. A TRO can be issued immediately and will last until the hearing for a final restraining order. Usually, the hearing takes place within 10 days of the TRO being administered.

If you are preparing for your final restraint order hearing, or feel threatened by your partner, call us today. Our attorneys can help you develop a proper case and prepare you for your hearing.

Unfortunately, some people use restraining orders as a negotiating tool during divorce. If your spouse has taken a TRO out against you, we will advocate for rights and make sure your story is heard.
