Temporary Restraining Order Issued in Wall Township

When the police arrive at the scene or otherwise become involved in a domestic incident, the alleged victim is typically asked if they wish to obtain a restraining order. If they opt for issuance of one, the case is called into a judge who must review the allegations to determine whether there is probable cause to believe that an act of domestic violence occurred and, if so, whether entry of a temporary restraining order is necessary to protect the plaintiff. When this relief is granted, the defendant is restrained from any contact with the plaintiff including, but not limited to, communications over the telephone, via text, emails or any other direct or indirect manner until such time as a final restraining order hearing is conducted. At the time of this proceeding, the accused has his or her opportunity to present the side of the case. This is when you have the chance to present your evidence including witnesses, medical records, telephone records, photographs, videos and any other information which tends to disprove the allegations of the accuser.  The result of the final restraining order hearing shall determine whether you will be permanently barred from returning to your home and contact with the plaintiff. It is important to keep in mind that the restraining order has almost no impact on any companion criminal charges for simple assault, harassment or another violation. You will therefore need representation in two separate proceedings, one in the Family Division at the Monmouth Superior Court for the restraining order and the other in criminal court at either the county level or in Wall Municipal Court.
