Have you been served with a restraining order in Hudson County? Do you want to file a restraining order against someone in Jersey City? Contact us for help. Here is a real case we handled for a very satisfied client in Hudson County.

Hudson County Restraining Order Dismissed thanks to the Tormey Law Firm LLC. Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client facing a final restraining order (FRO) in the Hudson County Superior Court in Jersey City, New Jersey. The client’s ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order against him based on harassment and stalking for allegedly calling her named through text messages and for leaving a note on her new boyfriend’s car saying negative things about her. The client and his ex-girlfriend have a child together so this was really crucial to avoid a permanent restraining order in this case.

Because there were no actual threats and the alleged stalking only occurred on a single date, Mr. Tormey was able to negotiate a dismissal of the permanent restraining order. Without any violence or threats of violence, it would have been difficult for the alleged victim to prove that it was reasonable for her to be in fear for her safety. In addition, stalking could not be established because stalking requires multiple incidents and in this case even her allegations only established one incident of stalking.

Based on this lack of evidence, the restraining order was dismissed and the parties entered into a consent order known as civil restraints. The parties agreed to have peaceful contact through email and text message only regarding the care of their child. This was a satisfying result for both the client and the Tormey Law Firm.

The defendant was able to avoid a permanent restraining order on his record in New Jersey which never expires. He would have been fingerprinted and placed into a statewide database for domestic violence offenders. He would have been prevented from owning or possessing firearms. In addition, it could have effected his immigration status and professional licenses and would effect his ability to travel in and out of the country and at any airport in the US.
