The Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a domestic violence victim who wished to obtain a permanent restraining order against her ex-husband. Our client, the plaintiff, is re-married with several children and her ex-husband refuses to let things go and was constantly driving by their home and showing up un-invited.

Despite being asked several times to cease the behavior by the plaintiff and her new husband, he continued. Based on this behavior, the plaintiff and her family were very disturbed and frightened and they just wanted to be left alone. As a result, Mr. Perry assisted her in filing a temporary restraining order (TRO) for harassment and stalking as the predicate acts of domestic violence. There was also a prior history of domestic violence including physical abuse when they were married. As a result, the TRO was granted by a Superior Court Judge and the defendant was served with the restraining order.

Then, the final restraining order (FRO) hearing was scheduled 10 days after the issuance of the TRO. The defendant represented himself at the trial and Mr. Perry represented our client, the victim. Our client testified as well as her new husband regarding the stalking and harassment and that, despite being told several times to stop, the defendant refused.

Proof Required to Get a Final Restraining Order in New Jersey

Our client, the Plaintiff, had the burden of proof in this case. She had to show, by a preponderance of the evidence, that:

  • An Act of Domestic Violence Occurred. She alleged harassment and stalking. Proving one of the two acts of violence is sufficient.
  • A prior history of violence
  • That she is in fear for her safety and needs the protection a restraining order provides

She can prove these elements through evidence which includes testimony of the Plaintiff, testimony of witnesses, emails, text messages, voicemails, police reports, photos of injuries, hospital records, etc.
