Final Restraining Order

New Jersey Final Restraining Order Lawyer

Seasoned New Jersey Final Restraining Order Lawyer Serving Clients In Camden County, Burlington County, Cumberland County, Gloucester County, and Throughout NJ 

A Final Restraining Order (FRO) in New Jersey is permanent. Once these orders are issued, under most circumstances they cannot be revoked. That is unless you or the applicant requests for the dismissal of the orders. This process can be long, tedious, and often complex. Final Restraining Orders can have serious and long-term implications. It is, therefore, best to seek the assistance of an experienced New Jersey Final Restraining Order Lawyer as soon as a temporary restraining order has been issued against you.

Evidence Required for Issuance of a Final Restraining Order 

When a temporary restraining order is issued, the court also provides a date for the final restraining order hearing. This is the hearing during which the judge will determine whether the temporary restraining order should become permanent. The hearing is usually within 10 days of the issuance of the temporary restraining order. It is therefore important to contact a New Jersey final restraining order lawyer as soon as possible following the issuance of the temporary restraining order. This will give your attorney adequate time to build your defense to fight the issuance of a permanent order. 

The burden of proof of securing a temporary restraining order in New Jersey is often low. This is so as to provide immediate protection to victims of domestic abuse. In order to issue a final restraining order, evidence of the following must be provided: 

  • Evidence must show that the accused and the plaintiff have a qualified domestic relationship. This includes both married partners as well as people living together either in a romantic or platonic relationship. It also includes people that were involved romantically but are now living apart as well as people with a child in common. 
  • That a predicate act of domestic violence occurred and that the accused committed these acts. Predicate acts of violence may include harassment, stalking, physical abuse, and more. 
  • That further acts of violence may occur if immediate legal restraints are not issued to prevent them. 

Both parties will be required to testify during the FRO hearing. Witnesses may also be called upon to provide testimony. Other evidence that may be provided includes medical records and police reports. 

The Final Restraining order hearing involves an examination of evidence and cross-examination of witnesses. It is best to seek the guidance and representation of a New Jersey final restraining order lawyer. Legal representation will greatly improve the outcome of the case. You can rely on the skills, experience, and knowledge of an attorney from Aydelotte & Scardella LLC to question, prove and contest evidence with the goal of protecting your rights and best interests. 

Getting a Final Restraining Order Dismissed 

In New Jersey, Final Restraining Orders are permanent orders. They can, however, be vacated under certain circumstances. The process of getting the order dismissed can be stringent. This is because Final Restraining Orders are only granted after the court has carefully considered the evidence presented to them. 

If you have had a final restraining order issued against you and are seeking its dismissal, you will need to show that: 

  • There is good cause to have the order dismissed 
  • The circumstances between you and the plaintiff have changed significantly and there is no longer a need for a restraining order 
  • You can provide the court with a transcript of the initial FRO hearing. 

It is possible to have the restraining order dismissed when you have the guidance and representation of a skilled and experienced attorney from Aydelotte & Scardella Law LLC.

Frequently Asked Questions about Final Restraining Order in New Jersey 

Will a final restraining order turn up in a background check?

Yes. You will be fingerprinted and an official record will be made of the restraining order with the state law enforcement agencies. It will therefore more than likely turn up in a background check. This can impact your ability to secure employment or even limit your housing options. A final restraining order could also impact your right to see your children. It is therefore important to seek the assistance of an experienced New Jersey final restraining order lawyer. Your attorney can help to prevent the issuance of a final restraining order or have the restrictions reduced.

Does moving out of state or to another part of the state affect a final restraining order?

A final restraining order issued by a New Jersey court is enforceable throughout the state. It is also still enforceable in another state. Federal Law recognizes civil protection orders given in any state or US territory. The rules of the order will remain valid even when out of the state in which the order was given.
