Senator Jon Bramnick said it’s ridiculous that people who are being stalked and harassed can’t go straight to court for a restraining order unless they are family members or in a relationship.

“It’s ridiculous that you can’t get a restraining order without filing criminal charges when you have a crazy neighbor who is harassing you or someone is stalking you,” said Bramnick (R-21). “A restraining order can help stop concerning behavior from turning into something more dangerous. Other states make it easier for victims of harassment to get protective restraining orders, and New Jersey should too.”

Bramnick cosponsors, S-1517, bipartisan legislation that would allow restraining orders to be issued for situations in which domestic violence statutes do not apply.
