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.
