Restraining Order Defense Lawyers with offices in Bergen County, NJ
Do you want to file a temporary restraining order in Bergen County? Do you need a lawyer to fight a false restraining order that has been filed against you? You’ve come to the right place.
Travis J. Tormey and Christopher Perry of the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client facing a final restraining order (FRO) in the Bergen County Superior Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey. The firm’s office is conveniently located at 254 State Street in Hackensack NJ which is literally around the corner from the Bergen County Superior Court. As a result, our NJ restraining order defense lawyers appear in Family Court in Bergen County almost every week on a restraining order case. If the permanent restraining order was issued, the client would be fingerprinted, placed in a statewide database for domestic violence offenders, could not own firearms, and it could effect her traveling in and out of the country. In addition, if she violated the temporary or final restraining orders, she would be arrested and charged with contempt of court and could be put in jail.
The client was in a long term relationship with a woman for approximately 20 years. They lived together with the woman’s two adult sons and they recently had an argument whereby our client allegedly slapped her. It would have been very difficult for the alleged victim to obtain a permanent restraining order based on those facts. As a result, our seasoned NJ restraining order defense attorneys negotiated a consent agreement known as “civil restraints” which detailed that the parties would have no further contact and that our client would move out of the home. It also negotiated a move out date and a dissolution of property that the couple had accumulated over the 20 years. Our attorneys went so far as to be present on a Saturday for the move out date to make sure the agreement was complied with and that there were no further issues with the couple.
