NJ Restraining Order Lawyers

Restraining Order cases are handled in the Superior Court in the county in which the temporary restraining order (TRO) was filed. To establish jurisdiction, the parties must reside in that county or the alleged act of domestic violence must have occurred there. The final restraining order hearings are typically heard within 10 days of the issuance of the temporary restraining order (TRO).

New Jersey Superior Courts: Handling Restraining Order Matters

The Superior Courts in New Jersey include the following:

Since a restraining order is a civil case, the standard of proof is by a preponderance of evidence (as opposed to “beyond a reasonable doubt” which is a criminal standard of proof). Both parties can be represented by counsel or they can choose to represent themselves. The hearing (trial) is held before a Family Court judge who determines whether or not a permanent restraining order should issue. In New Jersey, restraining orders never expire.
