Fight a Restraining Order in Warren County, NJ

Case Dismissed Based on Lack of Standing for the Plaintiff Under the Domestic Violence Act

Help Restraining Order Attorney Warren County NJ

Restraining Order Lawyer Warren County NJ

If you have a temporary restraining order (TRO) in Warren County and you need legal assistance, contact the Tormey Law Firm for help. Our attorneys have literally handled hundreds of restraining orders throughout New Jersey for clients including in the Warren County Superior Court in Belvidere, NJ. Here is a case we successfully handled for one of our very satisfied clients.

One of our clients was charged criminally after an altercation with his cousin. The cousin also filed a domestic violence temporary restraining order which was docketed in the Family Division. When the client retained us, we realized that the alleged victim did not have jurisdiction or standing to file a TRO under the domestic violence act.

The parties must have been in a dating relationship at some point, resided together, or have a child together. In this case, the alleged victim never lived with the defendant. He stayed at his house a few times but was never actually a household member under the law. Based on these legal issues, we appeared in court and filed a motion to dismiss the case based on the plaintiff’s lack of standing under the domestic violence act. After some questioning of the plaintiff by our attorneys, the Judge agreed and dismissed the case completely.

Restraining Order Dismissed Based on Standing – Warren County Court

This was a fantastic result for our client and the law firm. Once a temporary restraining order is dismissed, the defendant has no record of it and there is nothing to expunge from his background.
