Beat a Restraining Order Bergen County NJ

False Allegations Domestic Violence NJ

Do you need a lawyer for representation at a restraining order hearing in Bergen County? We can help. Here is a case we recently handled in Hackensack for a very satisfied client.

The restraining order defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC represented a client facing a permanent restraining order (known as an “FRO”) at the Bergen County NJ Superior Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey. She and her boyfriend had been living together for many years and had recently broken up. He filed a temporary restraining order (known as a “TRO”) against her alleging harassment as the predicate act of domestic violence. She hired our firm to represent her at the final hearing and to potentially negotiate a settlement with the plaintiff.

Our restraining order defense attorneys reached out to the plaintiff who was representing himself in the matter (known as “pro se”) to see if a possible settlement could be reached. There were a number of outstanding issues regarding property at their apartment including beds, furniture, dishes, televisions, etc. As a result, although our attorneys absolutely believed we would prevail at the final hearing and the restraining order would be dismissed, it made more practical sense for our client to enter into a civil restraints agreement so the parties could divide this property and go one with their lives. Otherwise, even if she won the restraining order hearing, she would have to try and take him to civil court to recover many of her belongings from the apartment which was in his name.

Therefore, the plaintiff agreed to drop the temporary restraining order (TRO). The parties entered into a civil restraints agreement (contract) whereby she agreed to leave the apartment and they divided their property evenly. A list of the property that each was entitled to was included in the civil restraints agreement that our attorneys drafted.

This was a satisfying result for the client and the Tormey Law Firm LLC.
