Handling Restraining Order Hearings in Elizabeth, NJ
Local Union County Domestic Violence Lawyers Near Me
Our experienced restraining order attorneys represented a client a few weeks ago who was served with a temporary restraining order (TRO) by his mother in Union County. Our client is 30 years old and resides with his mother in Union, NJ. She filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) against him alleging harassment and assault as the predicate acts of domestic violence.
If the Judge issued the final restraining order (FRO), our client would be removed from his residence permanently. He would be fingerprinted and placed into a statewide database for domestic violence offenders. This could effect his job, professional licenses, schooling, and traveling in and out of the country. Finally, he would be prohibited from owning or possessing firearms.
When we reviewed the restraining order, it was very clear that there was no domestic violence in this case. Our client and his mother were essentially arguing over trivial matters related to their residence. As a result, we had no concerns about prevailing at trial. And that’s exactly what we did. The Judge heard all of the evidence in the case including the testimony of the plaintiff and our client and determined that no acts of domestic violence occurred in this case. Therefore, he dismissed the temporary restraining order against our client.
