The restraining order defense attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm recently succeeded in defending another client against allegations of domestic violence, prevailing at trial and getting the restraining order dismissed. Our client was accused of harassment as the result of an alleged incident in Hudson County, and the plaintiff was able to obtain a temporary restraining order. But, fortunately for our client, he contacted the experienced restraining order defense team at the Tormey Law Firm. We met with him, reviewed the evidence, developed a defense strategy, prepared the client for trial and ultimately achieved exactly what the client wanted: no final restraining order and no entry in the state’s domestic violence registry. If you are served with a temporary restraining order and want to defend your good name, contact the Tormey Law Firm to learn more about what it takes to prevail at a final restraining order trial.

What happens at a domestic violence restraining order hearing?

In New Jersey, a final restraining order trial takes place at the Superior Court, Family Part in the county where the alleged domestic violence took place or where either party resides. Usually, the court will schedule a final restraining order hearing within ten days of the entry of a temporary restraining order and both parties will be required to appear in court and indicate how they intend to proceed. If the plaintiff wants a final restraining order, the matter will then proceed to a final restraining order hearing, or a trial, for the court to determine whether or not a permanent restraining order is needed to protect the plaintiff from the defendant. Unlike many other states, final restraining orders in New Jersey do not automatically expire after the passage of time. Rather, a final restraining order is permanent in New Jersey, in every respect.

Because final restraining orders in New Jersey are permanent and require the defendant to be fingerprinted and entered into a domestic violence database, it is important to properly prepare for a final restraining order trial and have an experienced domestic violence attorney on your side. In fact, during a final restraining order hearing, the New Jersey Court Rules and New Jersey Rules of Evidence control how the court will conduct the trial. Thus, if you are served with a temporary restraining order, an experienced domestic violence attorney can help you navigate the process, explain what to expect during a final restraining order hearing, and develop a detailed and strategic approach to prevailing at trial.   In our recent victory, preparation was key: we met with the client to learn about his relationship with the plaintiff, reviewed the alleged events, and used the applicable domestic violence laws to create an effective defense strategy. Ultimately, the preparation paid off and, after trial, the court dismissed the case and the client walked away without a final restraining order.
