Aggressive Domestic Violence Restraining Order Representation

Allegations or incidents of domestic violence may lead to family court disputes involving restraining orders in New Jersey. When a person seeks and obtains a temporary restraining order, the issue is placed on the court calendar for a formal hearing. During this emotional time, individuals on both sides of these matters may focus exclusively on their own feelings and knowledge of the circumstances surrounding their domestic relationship, or an incident that may have led to a temporary restraining order.

Seek Representation To Avoid Pitfalls In A Formal Restraining Order Hearing Or Trial

There is a vast difference between what may be necessary to obtain a temporary order and a final restraining order. Many people who face these disputes are under stress and their emotions may overcome an effective presentation before a judge. Whether you are seeking the protection of an order, or are accused of being the aggressor in a domestic violence dispute, it is prudent to seek the representation of a domestic violence restraining order trial attorney. Note that restraining order matters are not necessarily always resolved in an all or nothing fashion. An alternative outcome may involve what is known as civil restraints.

Concerns related to domestic violence charges frequently involve the physical and mental health of everyone involved. At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., we represent individuals and families throughout New Jersey on both sides of domestic violence allegations. Based in West Caldwell, we can provide you with legal representation and advocacy anywhere in the state.

Our domestic violence legal team includes experienced lawyers who know how to prepare and present your story to a judge in a final hearing. We work one-on-one with our clients to learn the big picture – as well as the fine details – to prepare a strong strategy and fight for optimal results. Our insight and experience also takes into account the long-range consequences that restraining orders, or civil restraints, have on future family court proceedings that may impact child custody and parenting time issues.

Effects Of Domestic Violence Charges And Restraining Orders

Domestic violence charges and restraining orders can have a dramatic impact on divorce proceedings. They can accomplish the following:

  • Protect a spouse and family from harm
  • Prohibit the offender from returning home, visiting children or taking possessions
  • Provide a parent with temporary custody of children and temporary possession of the home, in addition to a financial support order
  • Provide for supervised parenting time

A final hearing for a domestic violence restraining order, as well as the provisions sought for a final restraining order – or civil restraint order – create a court record that may have a ripple effect for custody disputes and potential modification of custody order disputes down the line. It is important to work with a legal team that understands the immediate impact, as well as the future potential consequences, that the family court record may have when children are involved in the damaged relationship of the parents in a domestic dispute.
