Appealing a temporary restraining order

Appealing a temporary restraining order

In New Jersey, you have the option of appealing a temporary restraining order.  This is a rare move but with the right attorney and the right argument, it can a smart tactic to help your case.  The most common reason why someone files an appeal of a temporary restraining order is to remove or relax some of the restrictions contained in the TRO.  For example, the TRO may bar the defendant from going back to his/her own house.  If the victim doesn’t even live at that house anymore, the defendant can file an appeal to get back in the house.  Another example is where the defendant’s parenting time is impacted.  An appeal can get the defendant right back in court to adjust or otherwise remove these restrictions.
