“A client retained our services to represent her at a restraining order hearing in Mercer County. We successfully negotiated a dismissal of the TRO and entered into a civil restraints agreement among the parties.”
Have you been served with a restraining order in Hamilton Township, Mercer County? Do you want to file a restraining order in Trenton because you are in fear for your safety? We can help. Here is an example of a real restraining order case we successfully handled for a client in Mercer County NJ.
The NJ domestic violence defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client who was facing a temporary restraining order (TRO) in the Mercer County Superior Court located in Trenton, New Jersey. Our client and her husband were having marital issues and a fight occurred in their home in Hamilton, New Jersey. After the incident, the client’s husband went to the police station and obtained a temporary restraining order against her. With a final hearing date looming, the client contacted Mr. Tormey and hired the Tormey Law Firm LLC to represent her in court at the final restraining order hearing. In the meantime, we also assisted her in applying for and obtaining her own restraining order against her husband.
Now, both parties had restraining orders against the other (known as cross-complaints) and the Judge was ready to have a trial on both cases to determine if a permanent restraining order should be issued against either party (the husband or the wife or both). However, the other party was represented by an attorney also and we were able to work out an agreement where both parties dismissed the restraining order against the other. Instead, we entered into a civil restraints agreement which lays out how the parties should communicate moving forward while their divorce is being processed. It also addresses custody and parenting time, child support, financial support, etc.
Civil restraints is often a great resolution in cases like these. The parties are available to avoid a permanent restraining order in New Jersey which stays with them forever. They would also have been fingerprinted and placed into a statewide database for domestic violence offenders. They would be prohibited from owning or possessing firearms. Instead, the civil agreement allows the parties to put an agreement on the record as to how they want to communicate (if at all) and resolve outstanding issues while they are going through the divorce process.
