Weinfeld is centrally located in Woodbury, and he successfully serves residents throughout Gloucester, Burlington and Camden Counties in restraining order cases.
When the state grants a final restraining order (FRO) for a victim, it becomes a criminal offense for the perpetrator to approach the victim, come to their workplace, or attempt to contact the victim on the phone or via text or email. An FRO will only be granted after the facts of the domestic violence case have been reviewed, but during that time you may request and be granted a temporary restraining order (TRO).
For those wrongly accused of domestic violence, legal assistance is vital. The state of New Jersey laws regarding domestic violence are rightfully written to protect victims. Unfortunately, some litigants take advantage of this system to wrongfully obtain property and custody rights through restraining orders. The penalties are severe, including being listed on a domestic violence offender list.
