a. Homicide – N.J.S.A. 2C:11-1;

b. Assault – N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1;

c. Terroristic Threats – N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3;

d. Kidnapping – N.J.S.A. 2C:13-1;

e. Criminal Restraint – N.J.S.A. 2C:13-2;

f. False Imprisonment – N.J.S.A. 2C:13-3;

g. Sexual Assault – N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2;

h. Criminal Sexual Contact – N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3;

i. Lewdness – N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4;

j. Criminal Mischief – N.J.S.A. 2C:17-3;

m. Harassment – N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4; or

n. Stalking – N.J.S.A. 2C:12-10.

When a restraining order is first issued, it will be temporary until there is a full hearing as Defendant has a right to be heard and defend against the allegations made against him. If you are awarded the temporary restraining order, Defendant will be served with a copy of the order. You and Defendant will need to appear in Court for a full hearing as to the allegations within ten (10) days thereafter. An experienced attorney would be able to guide you through the process especially at the final hearing.
