In the The New Jersey Superior Court, like restraining orders issued anywhere in New Jersey can restrict your ability to go home, contact the victim, see your children, and you may have a court date on the temporary restraining order as to when to appear for the final restraining order hearing where it will be determined if a final restraining order is in fact needed. Defending against a New Jersey Domestic Violence restraining order or domestic violence charge in Union County, New Jersey or in any other county such as: Hudson, Essex, Bergen, Passaic, Somerset, is very important because final orders in New Jersey are in fact final/permanent restraining orders that will affect your ability to carry a gun, ability to work in certain professions, how often you see your kids, where you live, being added to a nationwide registry that can affect your travel, fines, damages and more.
