Served with a restraining order in Warren County? The Tormey Law Firm can help. Our lawyers have literally handled thousands of domestic violence cases over the years with great success. Here is an example of a domestic violence restraining order matter we handled for a client in Warren County in Belvidere, NJ.

The NJ restraining order lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm did it again: Represented a client on a temporary restraining order (TRO) matter in Warren County NJ and successfully had the case dismissed. In this case, our client’s ex-husband filed a restraining order against her for allegedly attempting to poison him. The facts of this case are unusual. Despite being divorced, the parties continued to reside together for years after the divorce was finalized. They had children in common and thus resided in the same residence despite no longer being married. Then, our client’s ex-husband accused her of poisoning him and filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) against her. She was forced to leave her home and contacted the Tormey Law Firm for assistance.

Negotiate Settlement Agreement with Other Party

Our Warren County NJ restraining order attorneys appeared in court and attempted to negotiate a settlement with the other party. The parties have a 16-year-old son and we were able to negotiate a dismissal of the restraining order and we referred our client to a divorce attorney who could handle the custody and support issues that arose during the matter.

A settlement agreement known as civil restraints is essentially a contract between the parties which details how they will communicate with each other moving forward (if at all) and can address any other issues the parties wish to address, including but not limited to:

  • living arrangements
  • child custody, support
  • division of property
  • payment of bills
  • dates for removal of property from a residence

These and any other outstanding issues can be addressed in the agreement and then placed on the record in court. If the parties have a child in common or are filing a divorce complaint, this civil restraints agreement can be docketed with the court. If not, then the agreement is essentially a contract between the parties.

As a result of this agreement and the dismissal of the temporary restraining order, our client avoided having a final restraining order (FRO) hearing and potentially a permanent restraining order. This would result in fingerprints, being placed in a statewide database for domestic violence offenders, and other collateral consequences such as a ban on owning firearms. In addition, if she ever violated the final restraining order she would be arrested and charged with contempt of court and she would be facing a permanent criminal charge on her record.
