Consequences Of Having A Restraining Order Entered Against You

New Jersey Restraining Order LawyersNew Jersey Restraining Order Lawyers

Whether you’ve had a temporary restraining order entered against you after someone has filed a domestic violence complaint against you, or after the court has issued a final restraining order following a hearing, you may be subject to various restrictions. The restrictions included in a restraining order are aimed at preventing a domestic violence defendant from having contact with or committing further acts of domestic violence against a plaintiff. The specific restrictions in an order can vary based on the circumstances of the parties, and may include:

  • Altering the parties’ custody arrangement, including temporarily restricting custody or requiring supervised custody
  • Requiring the defendant to provide financial support or payment of living expenses for the plaintiff
  • Prohibiting the defendant from contacting the plaintiff or the plaintiff’s family, or from going places frequented by the plaintiff, such as the plaintiff’s home or place of work
  • Prohibiting the defendant from purchasing, owning, or possessing firearms and weapons, and requiring the defendant to surrender all weapons to law enforcement
  • Requiring the defendant to participate in mental health therapy, anger management counseling, or drug/alcohol addiction treatment

Having a final restraining order entered against you will require you to be photographed and fingerprinted, with the information entered into state and national domestic violence registries.

If you violate the conditions of a restraining order entered against you, it can result in criminal charges of contempt, which carries a minimum mandatory sentence of 30 days in jail. If you violate a restraining order by committing another criminal offense, you may be subject to additional charges and even more severe criminal penalties.

How Our Experienced New Jersey Restraining Order Lawyers From Camili & Capo, PA Can Help If You’re Subject To A Restraining Order

You have the best chance at protecting your rights and interests if you act quickly upon being served with a domestic violence complaint and a temporary restraining order. The court will have to hold a hearing before it can issue a final restraining order. In order to issue a FRO, a court will need to find that you have committed a predicate act of domestic violence, that there is a history of domestic violence between you and the plaintiff, and that a FRO is necessary for the plaintiff’s protection against you committing future acts of domestic violence. The issuance of a FRO can be challenged on any of these three bases. Krenar Camili, Esq. and Joseph Capo, Esq. will use their years of courtroom experience to challenge the case against you and advocate against the issuance of a FRO.

Even if a court has already issued a FRO against you, you still have legal options. Camili & Capo, PA can file a petition to vacate an existing FRO, advocating a persuasive argument that can show the court that the order is no longer necessary for the plaintiff’s continued protection from domestic violence.
