Are you a victim of domestic violence and you need a final restraining order in Essex County? Contact us now for immediate assistance.

The restraining order attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm recently helped another satisfied client obtain the protections of a final restraining order in Essex County, New Jersey. Our client came to us in a moment of desperation – she didn’t know what to do. Her ex-boyfriend, who happened to also be a former co-worker, was calling her at all hours of the night from unknown phone numbers, sending excessive text messages and threatening e-mails. During one of the phone calls the defendant even said that he was going to show up at the plaintiff’s apartment and kill her. Our client had taken the first step of going to the Essex County Family Courthouse on her own to get a temporary restraining order.

Amend a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) to Include All Acts of Violence, Prior History

After she came to our office, we then guided her through every step of the way. We helped her amend the temporary restraining order to preserve the ability to present all of the necessary evidence during the final restraining order trial; we met with her to review the potential evidence, prepare a final evidence packet, and get ready for her trial testimony; and then we went to court on the day of the final restraining order prepared for trial. However, upon meeting with the defendant’s attorney and discussing the strengths of the case, the defendant consented to the final restraining order and our client got the protection she needed. Not only that, the defendant also agreed to pay our attorney’s fees which the judge could have ordered anyway if we prevailed at trial.

Restraining order matters in New Jersey can be difficult to deal with on your own. As a plaintiff, the courts will require testimony in the court room during a final restraining order trial and you will be subjected to cross examination by the defense. The bottom line is that a final restraining order is a full-blown trial during which it is the plaintiff’s burden to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that a predicate act of domestic violence occurred and that a final restraining order is necessary to protect the plaintiff from immediate harm or future acts of domestic violence. During a trial, the plaintiff must present sufficient evidence in the form of testimony, photographs, or documents to convince the court to grant a final restraining order. But the evidence must comply with the applicable court rules to be admissible and entered into evidence to be considered by the judge.
