I need to Appeal a Restraining Order in Morris County NJ

The first and most important thing to do when facing a permanent restraining order is to hire an experienced attorney to fight the case in court so that a final restraining order (FRO) is not issued against you. However, if a final (permanent) restraining order has been issued against you in court after a hearing, the case is not over. You have 45 days to appeal the judge’s decision. 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’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.
  • 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.
