Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders in Saddle Brook, New Jersey
It is necessary to recognize that a restraining order is not the same as a criminal charge. Restraining orders are considered “civil matters,” which means that they are handled in the Family Division of the county superior court. By contrast, a criminal charge is typically handled in either the local municipal court or the county superior court, and the outcome may include the defendant being sentenced to jail or prison. When a domestic violence incident involves a physical assault or a threat of some kind, it is possible that the accused individual will be subject to both a restraining order and a criminal charge for something like simple assault, aggravated assault, or terroristic threats; however, not all restraining orders are accompanied by criminal charges.
When a domestic violence complaint is filed, it is possible that something known as a temporary restraining order, or TRO, will be issued against you. This is exactly what it sounds like: a restraining order that has effect only for a limited duration of time and that will effectively prohibit you from coming into contact with the alleged victim during that time. Once a TRO has been issued, the next step in the process will be for a court to determine whether a final restraining order, or FRO, should be put into effect. This determination is made at a Final Restraining Order hearing, which is typically scheduled to occur within 10 days of the issuance of the TRO. If you are facing a restraining order in Saddle Brook, your final hearing will occur in Bergen County Superior Court, Family Division. You need talented defense representation if you are looking to avoid a permanent order of protection against you and all of the damaging effects that come with it. That’s where we can help. Contact our Bergen County office if you would like to speak with an attorney at no cost.
The temporary inconveniences of a protection order can be the least of your problems since many domestic violence complaints result in both restraining orders and serious criminal charges that carry severe penalties such as prison time and fines. Since your restraining order hearing and your criminal case will likely involve overlapping fact issues even though they are adjudicated in different courts, it is best for you to have one knowledgeable domestic violence attorney to handle your defense in both matters. Our lawyers handle every facet of your domestic violence restraining order and criminal case, fighting for your innocence on all fronts.
