Restraining Order

Restraining Order

Restraining orders are serious matters. A temporary restraining order (TRO) may issue upon a complaint stating reasonable grounds and then a hearing will be scheduled before a Judge to determine whether a Final Restraining Order (FRO) will be issued. Anyone who finds themselves facing a FRO should seek the assistance of counsel immediately. There are several components which must be proven for someone to secure a FRO against someone else. An attorney who regularly handles FRO matters is aware of the various elements required to be met and, upon discussing the facts of the case with the client, is often able to show that the client did not in fact behave in a manner which should result in the imposition of an FRO.

An FRO is permanent in NJ unless it is removed by the Court who placed it. Although FROs are removable by the party seeking them, or by the individual subject to the FRO if certain criteria are met, they prevent those who have them from enjoying certain liberties as long as they are in place.
