The Law Offices of Qadeer & Sheikh represent and assist clients with restraining order matters.
The standard for entry of a Final Restraining Order (FRO) under the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence has been long established by the Courts. It is discussed in depth in the case Silver vs.Silver. In order to turn a temporary restraining order into a final one, the plaintiff(the alleged victim)must have a qualifying relationship with the defendant, and also has the burden to establish that:
1. The defendant committed one or more of the predicate acts of domestic violence identified in the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act; and
2. There is a need for the protection of an FRO going forward.
It is important to note that restraining orders, if they become final, can go on your permanent record. If you are a visa holder or permanent resident in the United States, it can quickly result in your deportation or removal hearings.
