The restraining order defense attorneys at our law firm have done it again: helped another client avoid a permanent restraining order in Morris County.  In New Jersey, restraining order cases are heard in the New Jersey Superior Court, Family Part, in the county where one of the parties resides or where the alleged act of domestic violence occurred.  This case was one between a husband and wife who lived in Morris County.  The wife alleged that the husband harassed her by accusing her of cheating, taking her phone, and preventing her from leaving their home.  After being served with the temporary restraining order (“TRO”), our client made a smart move and called the domestic violence defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm.  Now, the temporary restraining order has been dismissed and there is no final restraining order against our client.

In this case, both parties were represented by attorneys, which enabled a discussion to take place prior to trial in an effort to come to a civil restraints agreement about how the parties would interact, or not interact, going forward.  A civil restraints agreement is essentially a contract between the parties that controls how they will communicate.  In most cases, the agreement is simple: the parties will have no more contact.  Generally, the plaintiff no longer wants to have any contact at all from the defendant. But in this case, the family dynamic was different.  The parties were not getting divorced and they have children to care for and a home to maintain.  Thus, we crafted a detailed agreement outlining how the parties would handle responsibilities at home while staying in separate parts of the house: this afforded both parties with privacy and place of their own to go and be left alone while still being able to be there for their children and maintain the family home.

Negotiate Civil Consent Agreement Restraining Order Case Morris County NJ

After a couple hours of hammering out the details, both parties signed the civil restraints agreement and, ultimately, the plaintiff dismissed the temporary restraining order against our client.  As part of the process, the family court judge called the parties up to be sworn in and testify that they reached an agreement and that, most importantly, the plaintiff was dismissing the temporary restraining order.  In fact, the court will not dismiss a restraining order at the request of the plaintiff unless the court can find that the plaintiff’s request is made knowingly, willingly, and voluntarily and that no one forced, threatened, or coerced the plaintiff to request a dismissal of the temporary restraining order.  In this recent case, the court accepted the plaintiff’s sincere request to dismiss the case and then the case was closed.  Thus, a final restraining order trial was not necessary and our client avoided having to be finger printed and entered on the domestic violence registry.  If you are facing a final restraining order in Morris County, contact the experienced restraining order lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm to learn more about the consequences of a final restraining order and what to do if you are served with a temporary restraining order.
