How long does a restraining order last in NJ? Does it ever expire?

The answer is “No”. Restraining orders in New Jersey are permanent and never expire. As a result, if a temporary restraining order (TRO) has been issued against you and you are facing a final restraining order (FRO) hearing, it is imperative that you hire experienced legal counsel to protect you. If you represent yourself or use an attorney not experienced in restraining order cases, the final restraining order may be issued which is PERMANENT. The restraining order never expires and there are only a few ways for it ever to be lifted. First, if the plaintiff (alleged victim) wishes then the restraining order can be lifted. Second, if you file an appeal of the issuance of the FRO and are successful. Third, if you file a motion to vacate the restraining order in the future and are able to show good cause for said motion. Otherwise, the restraining order will always be in place.
