Restraining Order Lawyer in Cherry Hill NJ 

Our criminal defense lawyers handle restraining orders in Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester counties regularly. Here are some additional pages that will provide you with essential information if you are dealing with a domestic violence case in New Jersey:

New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act: N.J.S.A. 2C:25-17

In 1991, the New Jersey legislature passed the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, which governs the rules and procedures for restraining orders in the state. The statute stipulates who has standing as a victim of domestic violence, what acts are considered crimes of domestic violence, and the procedures by which both temporary and final restraining orders may be issued.

First, a victim of domestic violence must be considered a victim under the Domestic Violence Act, which requires the parties to:

  • Have previously resided together;
  • Have had a dating or marriage relationship; and
  • Have a child together or will have a child together.

Next, a domestic violence charge must be connected to one of the following criminal offenses: Homicide, Assault, Harassment, Stalking, Terroristic Threats, Kidnapping, Criminal Restraint, False Imprisonment, Sexual Assault, Aggravated Criminal Sexual Contact, Lewdness, Criminal Mischief, Criminal Trespass.

When an alleged victim files for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), the case will be scheduled for a Final Restraining Order (FRO) hearing. This hearing usually occurs within 10 days, and it takes place at the Superior Court, Family Part. At the FRO hearing, a Superior Court judge will determine whether a final restraining order should be issued in your case.
