Restraining Orders / Order of Protection

It is important to understand what charges you are facing after an alleged domestic violence incident. If there was an arrest, criminal charges must have been filed. As part of these criminal charges, there is often a “no contact order” attached to the bail. This means that the defendant is prohibited from having any contact with the victim while the charges are pending. Also, a civil restraining order may have been filed in addition to any criminal charges. This is known as a Temporary Restraining Order (or a “TRO”), which is issued by a Family Court judge and which also prevents the defendant from having any contact with the alleged victim. A violation of this TRO will result in criminal charges for contempt.

After a TRO is issued, the judge will set down a final hearing date to determine if a Final Restraining Order (known as an “FRO”) should issue. The judge will listen to testimony from both sides, any witnesses involved, and examine all evidence (text messages, emails, photographs, etc.) before deciding whether to grant the FRO. You should have an attorney represent you at this hearing.
