Here is a case where a Bergen County NJ restraining order was dismissed by the judge thanks to the Tormey Law Firm LLC. Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client at a final restraining order hearing (FRO) in the Bergen County Superior Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey. Our client was a girl in her early twenties who was dating a young man who’s parents did not approve of the relationship. She was often over his house and his father would continually throw her out of the house because he did not approve of their dating. Then, the father filed a restraining order against her to try and keep her out of the house for good.
As a young person, it was crucial to avoid having a final restraining order (FRO) issued against her. If it was issued, it is permanent in New Jersey and never expires. It will carry to every state in the US. In addition, she would be fingerprinted and placed into a statewide database for domestic violence offenders. She would be prohibited from owning firearms, and, if she was ever accused of violating the FRO, she would be arrested and charged criminally with contempt.
Luckily, the plaintiff in this case did not have standing under the Domestic Violence Act to file a restraining order against the defendant because they were not related, they never dated, and they never lived together. Although his attorney tried to argue that her staying over their house a few times constituted living together, the Judge did not agree and dismissed the restraining order based on a lack of standing for the plaintiff. This was a very satisfying result for our client and the law firm.
