What Are the Weapons Forfeiture Laws in New Jersey?

Under New Jersey Law, if you are deemed unfit to own firearms or are perceived as a risk to the general public or to a particular person, you are risk of having the state:

  • Revoke your Firearms Identification Card
  • Apply for forfeiture of weapons through the court

The state has 45 days after your weapons are seized to apply for a forfeiture of weapons through the courts. Weapons forfeiture hearings are conducted in the family part of the superior court of New Jersey.

Your case will be decided by a sitting Family Part Judge—not by a jury of your peers. In fact, your weapons can be forfeited and your Firearms Identification Card revoked even if the domestic violence charges and temporary restraining order against you are dismissed. New jersey statute N.J.S.A. 2C:25-21(d)(3) gives the state a wide range of authority when it comes to weapons forfeitures.

    "Ryan To The Rescue"
    Ryan is a very thorough attorney. He knows the law and he keeps you well informed of all the details with your case. He will work very hard for you. I would definitely use him again for any legal matters and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent attorney.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.
    - Former Client
    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.
    - Former Client
    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
