The Morris County restraining order attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm recently helped another client avoid contempt charges and having a permanent restraining order entered against him in Morris County. Not only was our client facing a final restraining order, he was also accused of violating the initial temporary restraining order, which is a criminal offense under the New Jersey criminal code for contempt of court. After the client hired the domestic violence defense attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm, we not only succeeded in getting the restraining order dismissed but we also successfully defended the contempt charge, resulting in a dismissal and no criminal record.

A temporary restraining order is taken very seriously by the police, the prosecutor’s office, and court. In fact, if you are served with a temporary restraining order you will be required to appear in family court within ten days for a final restraining order hearing. Additionally, if you violate a temporary restraining order, you will be arrested by police, charged with contempt of court, and the county prosecutor will pursue the case against you. In our recent client’s case, he was served with a temporary restraining order and then accused of having his friend call the plaintiff, asking her to drop the restraining order. Accordingly, he was charged with a disorderly persons offense of contempt, which carries a $1,000 fine, up to six months in the Morris County jail, and a permanent criminal charge on his record. In addition, because our client is not a United States citizen, he could face significant immigration consequences if convicted of this offense.

After being retained, the restraining order defense attorneys went straight to work to build a defense on behalf of our client: we issued subpoenas for surveillance footage where the alleged domestic violence took place, we contacted potential witnesses to undermine the plaintiff’s case, and we accumulated information to prove that our client did not violate the restraining order. In the end, the plaintiff dismissed the temporary restraining order against our client, with a consent order for civil restraints and the Morris County prosecutor dismissed the criminal contempt charges. Most importantly, our client avoided being fingerprinted, entered into the New Jersey domestic violence registry and having a criminal record for a contempt conviction.
