East Rutherford NJ Restraining Order Dismissed
East Rutherford NJ Restraining Order Lawyer
My client, a successful businessman, was in the throws of an anticipated divorce battle with his wife when an argument broke out. Although heated, it was nothing more than a verbal altercation, after which his wife left. He was shocked when officers from the East Rutherford Police Department later appeared at his home and served him with a Temporary Restraining Order.
Prior to appearing in court, my client provided me with voluminous information about his wife, including prior incidents in which she had assaulted him, prior issues with mental health concerns, and prior falsities that she had told others about their relationship.
We subsequently appeared at the Bergen County Superior Court (Family Division) for the Final Restraining Order hearing. After the victim was provided with an opportunity to consult with a domestic violence counselor, she decided that it was in her best interest to dismiss the restraining order.
It was a great result for my client.
