How can I obtain a restraining order?
A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) may be requested whether or not an arrest has been made or the police have been called. A TRO is always free. Emergency Temporary Restraining Orders are available through the Police Department at 34 Chapel Hill Road on a 24-hour basis. If the situation is non-emergent, you can request a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) by appearing at the Morris County Superior Court during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. Follow these guidelines to assist you:
  • Request a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) at the Superior Court.
  • Deliver a copy of the TRO, Proof of Service, and Law Enforcement Information form to your local police station. Retain the originals of all documents.
  • You must return to court to obtain a Final Restraining Order. You will be given a return to court date when obtaining the TRO. The Final Restraining Order must also be served to the defendant and copies delivered to the police station.
