If You’ve Been Handed a Domestic Violence Restraining Order, Your Chances for a Positive Outcome Can Improve Dramatically with a Call to my Office Today.
When someone with whom you’ve had a marital or dating relationship files a complaint against you claiming you committed a crime against him or her (such as Assault, Criminal Mischief, or Harassment), the victim can file both a criminal complaint and a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against you.
If you are charged with a crime of Domestic Violence, served with a TRO, or both, consult immediately with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Contact Howard Bailey at 973-982-1200 for a free consultation.
Defending a Domestic Violence Charge
In many cases, a client is charged with a criminal complaint and a TRO. This requires appearances in two different Courts, as the Restraining Order is heard in Family Part of the Superior Court and the criminal complaint is heard in either the Municipal Court or the Criminal Part of the Superior Court.
In a recent case, Howard Bailey represented a client charged with both types of complaints. After 4-days of testimony the Judge denied the issuance of a Final Restraining Order (FRO); and after several appearances in the Municipal Court the criminal complaint was dismissed by that Court. If you are charged with both a criminal offense and a TRO, it is important to remember that just because one is dismissed, does not mean that the other will be. Each must be defended separately because they are heard in different types of Courts.
