Client Reviews

Bergen County NJ Restraining Order Dismissed by Judge

“Without legal representation at your FRO hearing, a temporary restraining order can easily become a final restraining order, which will have long-term consequences for you and your family.”

Restraining Order Defense LawyerTravis J. Tormey recently represented a client at a Final Restraining Order (FRO) hearing in the Bergen County Superior Court, located in Hackensack, NJ. Our client was a girl in her early twenties who was dating a young man whose parents did not approve of the relationship. She was often over at his house, prompting his father to continually throw her out of the house because he did not approve of their dating. Then, the father filed a restraining order against her to try to keep her out of the house for good.

However, the father did not have standing under the Domestic Violence Act to file a restraining order against her because they were not related, they never dated, and they never lived together. Although his attorney tried to argue that her staying over at their house a few times constituted living together, the judge did not agree and dismissed the restraining order based on a lack of standing for the plaintiff.

This was a very satisfying result for both the client and the Tormey Law Firm.
