Details of a restraining order in New Jersey
After a temporary restraining order is granted, a date is set, usually within 10 days for a final restraining order hearing. At that hearing, the burden is on the victim to prove two things by a preponderance of the evidence: (1) the underlying criminal offense stated in the temporary restraining order did in fact occur; and (2) there is a continuing need for the protection of the victim.
