A restraining order forbids the defendant from further acts of domestic violence. It restrains the defendant from having any contact with the plaintiff, or plaintiff’s relatives, friends, or co-workers. A restraining order can also grant one party temporary custody and arrange a visitation schedule.
The defendant can be ordered to pay plaintiff for care and maintenance of the minor children. A plaintiff may request temporary possession of the residence, order defendant to receive counseling, and/or monetary compensation to victim.
Any person who is named as a defendant may violate the order by harassing, stalking, or assaulting you, or by causing another to do the same. Assess your immediate safety first, call the police if necessary.

If the defendant refuses to comply with the Judge’s Order for Support, Visitation or Counseling, you or your attorney may file a Motion of Enforcement. Motion Kits to assist you with this are available at the Justice Complex.
Any person who is named as a defendant may violate the order. Remember this is a no contact order. If your abuser calls you, sends flowers, cards, letters, etc., the abuser is in violation unless otherwise worded in the order.
The (victim) plaintiff cannot violate the order, but remember you requested this no contact order for your safety.
Although as the victim you are not ordered to stay away from the defendant and cannot be arrested, we urge you to limit contact. When restraints were ordered, you feared for your safety. If circumstances have changed, do not assume the order is not in effect. The abuser may be arrested if with you, even with your permission.
Please contact Providence House or the Domestic Violence Crisis Intervention Unit at 732-929-2019 for direction in dismissing the restraining order.
