Domestic Violence Allegations & Restraining Orders in Elizabeth, New Jersey
In New Jersey domestic violence offenses are serious. An accusation of domestic violence may lead to the issuance of a temporary restraining order. If it appears that the applicant is in danger of domestic violence, the judge shall, upon consideration of the applicant’s domestic violence affidavit, complaint or testimony, order emergency relief. Relief may be ordered without notification or representation of the alleged abuser in the nature of a temporary restraining order as authorized by statute. A judge may issue a temporary restraining order upon sworn oral testimony of an applicant who is not physically present.
Later, a hearing will be held to determine whether a permanent restraining order is appropriate. Restraining orders may prohibit you from possessing a handgun, prevent you from communicating with your spouse, or restrict your ability to be with your children.
