How to Dismiss a Final Restraining Order
As an experienced New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney, clients will come to me and ask about the process of dismissing a final restraining order.
- A final restraining order can be dismissed only by the domestic violence unit and requires a visit to the courthouse.
- A counselor will need to ascertain that you now feel safe, even though you once felt a need for a restraining order.
- Once the domestic violence unit approves your reasons for dismissing the order, a judge will ask you a series of questions to ensure that you’re not being coerced before dismissing that restraining order.
