New Jersey Restraining Order Lawyers
A restraining order, also known as an order of protection, is a Court order against an individual, which requires them to do or to desist or abstain from doing certain acts. Restraining orders can last from several days to several years, to the rest of someone’s life. Restraining orders typically include criminal penalties if the restrained individual violates the Court order. Restraining orders are most typical in allegations of domestic violence, stalking and abuse cases.
Restraining orders can consist of a variety of court injunctions such as:
- Stay Away
- No Contact
- Cease Abuse
- Exclusive Use
Other provisions a Court can place on a restraining order can include surrender of firearms and mandatory therapy or drug counseling. In addition, the restraining order can protect other people, such as friends, family members or children.
Our New Jersey criminal law firm aggressively pursues Court orders on behalf of those who are victims of domestic violence and / or civil harassment and need protection. The firm also defends against any temporary restraining order sought for frivolous or unlawful purposes. In addition, the attorneys are able to seek, and often get, legal fees in the family law and civil courtrooms.
Types of restraining orders

- Permanent Restraining Order
