East Rutherford NJ Restraining Order Dismissed

NJ Restraining Order Lawyer

* Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances. *

Ms. Hascup’s client, a successful businessman, was in the midst 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, Ms. Hascup’s client provided her with voluminous information about his wife, including prior incidents in which she had assaulted him, prior issues that had raised mental health concerns, and prior falsities that she had told others about their relationship.

She subsequently appeared with him 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 rather than be confronted with the information that Ms. Hascup had accumulated.

It was a great result for the client.
