Here is a case we handled successfully for a client in early 2020 who was served with a temporary restraining order (TRO) from his wife and also arrested and charged with simple assault in Edgewater Municipal Court. These are two separate and distinct matters in New Jersey with different proof requirements and handled by different judges and courts. These matters are completely unrelated so one case could be dismissed and one could be a conviction and vice versa. Or both cases could be dismissed or both convictions. Their outcomes are not contingent on the other case at all.

Restraining Order Bergen County NJ – Bergen County Superior Court – Family Division

Here, we were hired to represent the client on both cases, the restraining order as well as the misdemeanor criminal charge. First, we appeared in the Superior Court, Family Division in Bergen County to handle the temporary restraining order (TRO) case. Luckily, the plaintiff, the client’s wife, decided that she did not want to proceed with the case and dropped the restraining order completely. She spoke to domestic violence counselors who explained to her the cycle of domestic violence to confirm that she was dropping the restraining order freely and voluntarily. Then, the Judge dismissed the case on the record in court after speaking to the plaintiff and confirming her wishes.

Edgewater Municipal Court – Domestic Violence Simple Assault Charges

Then, we appeared in Edgewater Municipal Court to fight the disorderly persons simple assault charge. The client’s wife appeared and spoke to the prosecutor and indicated her intention to have the charges dismissed. However, it is not completely up to her. The prosecutor, the police officer, and the Judge all must agree and dismiss the case. Without her cooperation and testimony, the prosecutor could not prove the charges against our client beyond a reasonable doubt. As a result, the Edgewater simple assault charges were dismissed. Then, we were able to file an immediate expungement to have the arrest removed from our client’s record as well.
