The Bergen County NJ domestic violence defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm recently represented a client who was facing a temporary restraining order (FRO) at the Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack, NJ. Our client’s ex-girlfriend filed the TRO against him when there was an argument relating to her son and where he wanted to go to college. The parties dated for many years so our client had raised her son as his own and they were still very close even after the parties romantic relationship ended a few years ago. As a result, our client drove her son to a college visit and continued to be involved in the boy’s life. When our client commented on the cleanliness of their apartment and questioned the parenting skills of the plaintiff, she went ballistic and filed a TRO against him alleging acts of domestic violence.
Christopher Perry, one of our defense attorneys, appeared for the final restraining order hearing and the trial began. The plaintiff alleged assault and harassment as the predicate acts of domestic violence in this case. However, she was unable to prove to the judge that any acts of domestic violence actually occurred. In fact, the police were called by the defendant when the alleged acts of domestic violence occurred. Then, the plaintiff told the police a very different version of events which was reflected in their police reports than the version she alleged in her temporary restraining order (TRO) application. We subpoenaed the police officers to court to testify and the judge found major credibility issues with the plaintiff’s testimony. As a result, the judge found no acts of domestic violence and no grounds for a permanent restraining order in New Jersey.
