How can a restraining order help me if I have been the victim of domestic violence?

In New Jersey, judges have the discretion to impose multiple levels of restrictions with a restraining order. You may initially receive a temporary restraining order that becomes effective immediately. Following that, the judge can then finalize that order upon a hearing. With a restraining order, a judge has the authority to:

— Ensure the abuser cannot return home
— Order the abuser to continue to pay living expenses for a shared home
— Prevent any contact, including texts, emails, phone calls, etc.
— Order the abuser to stay away from your place of work, your children’s school, or any other significant location
— Restrict the abuser from possessing a firearm
— And more
