Travis successfully defended me in an unprecedented Final Restraining Order Trial with ease. Upon consultation I hired Travis Tormey to defend me in a very emotional and scary time of need where I was facing a potentially devasting FRO. Travis was knowledgeable, comforting, and most importantly confident. THIS GUY KNOWS THE LAW! Watch his YouTube clips, read his reviews, and simply call him to discuss your case. I did and was so impressed with his amazing win in court. Don’t go into court without this guy in your corner. Consulted, hired, and successfully had my day in court. Thanks for everything, I hope I never need a defense attorney again, but if I do, Travis Tormey is the only lawyer I would use. All 5 stars ! – Aaron

If you are facing a restraining order in New Jersey, there are certain things you should know. The following pages will provide you with valuable information and helpful answers to questions you might have:

The Components of a Domestic Violence Case in New Jersey

In 1991, the New Jersey legislature passed the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (N.J.S.A. 2C:25-17), which governs the rules and procedures for restraining orders in the state. The statute stipulates who has standing as a victim of domestic violence, what acts are considered crimes of domestic violence, and the procedures by which both temporary and final restraining orders may be issued.

First, a victim of domestic violence must be considered a victim under the Domestic Violence Act, which requires the parties to:

  • Have previously resided together;
  • Have had a dating or marriage relationship; and
  • Have a child together or will have a child together.

Next, a domestic violence charge must be connected to one of the following criminal offenses:

When an alleged victim files for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), the case will be scheduled for a Final Restraining Order (FRO) hearing. This hearing usually occurs within 10 days, and it takes place at the Superior Court, Family Part. At the FRO hearing, a Superior Court judge will determine whether a final restraining order should be issued in your case.
