New Jersey Restraining Order Violation Lawyer

Restraining orders, also called protective orders, are typically the result of a harassment or stalking complaint. Most people who have restraining orders against them feel they are unfair. However, even if they are unfair, restraining orders are the law, and when they are breached, the law is also broken.

Sometimes restraining order violation charges are simple misunderstandings or miscommunications. Whatever the circumstances, if you have been charged with violating a restraining order, you face serious penalties and you need a skilled defense lawyer.
