As an experienced Bergen County Domestic Violence Attorney I am often asked about temporary restraining orders. A temporary restraining order means that one spouse believes that they are a victim of domestic violence. If you ever believe that you are a victim of domestic violence, you need to contact your local police and obtain a temporary restraining order. The police will guide you and ask you if you want to go ahead and obtain a temporary restraining order. If you say yes, then you will go before a court that evening or that day and you will assert your allegations to that judge and that judge will determine whether or not you meet the qualifications under the domestic violence statute in order to obtain a temporary restraining order.
