Violating a Restraining Order Attorney Represents Clients in New Jersey

If you have violated a domestic violence restraining order in Essex County, New Jersey, you will be charged under N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9, Contempt. Contempt is most often charged as a disorderly persons offense carrying a maximum penalty of one year in jail. If, however, you are charged with another disorderly person offense, or indictable offense, when you violate the restraining order you may be facing a 4th Degree indictable contempt charge. Contempt raises from a disorderly persons violation to a 4th Degree indictable charge when the underlying offense that caused the violation of the restraining order was a disorderly persons offense or higher. A 4th Degree criminal charge can carry up to (18) months of jail time.
