Fight Restraining Order Warren County NJ
Domestic Violence Lawyers in Belvidere, New Jersey
Do you need an attorney to handle a domestic violence restraining order hearing in Warren County? We can help.
The Belvidere restraining order lawyers at our firm did it again: Represented a client on a temporary restraining order (TRO) matter in Warren County NJ and successfully had the case dismissed. In this case, our client’s ex-husband filed a restraining order against her for allegedly attempting to poison him. The facts of this case are unusual. Despite being divorced, the parties continued to reside together for years after the divorce was finalized. They had children in common and thus resided in the same residence despite no longer being married. Then, our client’s ex-husband accused her of poisoning him and filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) against her. She was forced to leave her home and contacted our law firm for assistance.
Our Warren County restraining order attorneys appeared in court and attempted to negotiate a settlement with the other party. The parties have a 16-year-old son and we were able to negotiate a dismissal of the restraining order and we referred our client to a divorce attorney who could handle the custody and support issues that arose during the matter. As a result, our client avoided having a final restraining order (FRO) hearing and potentially a permanent restraining order. This would result in fingerprints, being placed in a statewide database for domestic violence offenders, and other collateral consequences such as a ban on owning firearms. In addition, if she ever violated the final restraining order she would be arrested and charged with contempt of court and she would be facing a permanent criminal charge on her record.
