  • No longer contact you in any way
  • Stay away from your children, if you have any

Types of Restraining Orders in New Jersey

In New Jersey, there are two types of restraining orders – a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and a Final Restraining Order (FRO). Here are the differences between the two types of restraining orders in NJ:

  • Temporary Restraining Order (TRO): Can be obtained immediately and are issued on a preliminary basis
  • Final Restraining Order (FRO): May only be entered after a hearing where the individual is found to have committed an act of domestic violence. In an effort to protect victims, the courts try to resolve these matters as soon as possible, usually holding the hearing within 10 days of the complaint being filed.

Contact a restraining order lawyer from our firm to learn more about getting a restraining order in New Jersey.
