Wife files TRO against husband Morris County NJ
Fight a Restraining Order Morristown NJ
Our restraining order lawyers were hired last week to represent a husband who had a temporary restraining order (TRO) filed against him by his wife arising out of Boonton, NJ. As a result, the case was scheduled for a final restraining order (FRO) hearing in the Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, NJ. If the wife wanted to proceed with the FRO, and the Judge granted it, then the parties would have to get divorced because they are not permitted to have any further contact with each other, reside together, or communicate in any way. The parties have been married for more than 10 years with 3 young children.
The plaintiff alleged assault and harassment as the predicate acts of domestic violence which arose out of an argument where the plaintiff alleges that the defendant tried to grab her phone out of her hand. When we appeared in court, the attorney spoke to the plaintiff and discussed whether or not she wanted to proceed with the trial. She decided that she wanted to try to work things out with her husband and stay in the marriage. As a result, she spoke to the domestic violence counselors and appeared on the record before the Judge to dismiss the restraining order completely. Based on this, we did not need to conduct the final hearing for the Judge to determine whether or not the permanent restraining order should issue.
There is no criminal record associated with the TRO being filed. It will not show up on a background check or anything like that for the defendant in the future. The only record is with the court, if the plaintiff ever files another TRO in the future, there is a record that this one was previously filed and then dismissed.
