Posted by Stanley

“After receiving a Restraining Order by an ex girlfriend accusing me of harassment which was false, I contacted the law firm. They were very professional and help to keep me calm and relaxed. Travis and Chris helped me to get all the information I needed. I was also in the process of obtaining a high level position when this happened and was concerned about it affecting me getting the new job. Chris helped to get the case dismissed as quickly as possible and did an excellent job of keeping me informed. They are a great law firm and would recommend them to anyone.”

I want to appeal a restraining order in New Jersey

There are two reasons you may want to appeal the judge’s decision in a restraining order case. First, the judge dismissed the restraining order and you are the plaintiff and you believe the restraining order should have been issued. The second option is if you are the defendant and the judge issued the final restraining order (FRO) against you and you believe the court made a mistake in doing so. In either scenario, the NJ restraining order lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC can help.

There must be grounds for your appeal, meaning there has to be some argument to be made that a mistake caused the judge to issue the wrong decision. Some of the potential grounds for appeal are as follows:

  • The judge got the law wrong: The judge found harassment but misinterpreted the harassment statute and issued a finding that is inconsistent with domestic violence law in NJ. This could obviously apply to any of the predicate acts of domestic violence including harassment, stalking, simple assault, etc.
  • The judge got the facts wrong: The judge made mistakes in their findings and in their decision that were not what the parties testified to during the trial.
  • The judge did not rule properly on objections: The judge considered evidence that should have not been considered and was objected to in court at trial.
  • The judge’s finding was not complete: The judge’s opinion and finding did not detail the grounds for the restraining order including the predicate act, prior history of domestic violence, and that the restraining order was necessary to protect the safety and well being of the plaintiff.

These are just some examples of the potential grounds to appeal the issuance of a permanent (final) restraining order in NJ. It is imperative that you order the trial transcripts and an experienced attorney reviews them with you to determine what your grounds for appeal may be.
