Middlesex County Restraining Order Attorneys
A restraining order hearing can be very complex because it is a summary proceeding. That is, unlike just about any other court case, there is no discover; no prep time. You show up for trial at the first hearing without knowing what the other side will say or do. In addition, the law on the issue is complex as it is not as simple as whether or not an act of domestic violence occurred. Our Middlesex County Restraining Order Lawyers stand ready to fight for you. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our team of tough, smart restraining order attorneys know the law and know how to protect you.

If you have a restraining order against you and it is too late to file an appeal, your best option may be to file a motion to vacate or dismiss the restraining order. Our attorneys can help you get this mark off your record so you can get on with your life. Although there is no exact time limit as to when this motion should be filed, our attorneys usually recommend our clients wait at least one year. However, you should call our law firm to discuss your specific case and your options.
