If you have a final restraining order in New Jersey, you will not be issued a gun permit. However, you can file a motion to vacate your final restraining order. It is a very complex process that you should seek legal assistance for. Unlike other states where restraining orders expire after a few years, restraining orders in New Jersey are meant to be permanent; hence the use of the word “final”. Most people that come to us to vacate an FRO either didn’t have a lawyer or they didn’t have a very good one. Thus, to vacate the FRO, we need to hit the case hard. We have been very successful in vacating FRO’s so if you need our help, call us anytime. After the FRO is vacated, we can then get to work on your gun permit application.
