The law firm of Maynard & Sumner, LLC, serves clients across Morris County, Somerset County, Passaic County and the surrounding areas in matters involving TROs and final restraining orders / FROs. As an experienced family law and criminal defense law firm, we provide effective legal counsel to either the person seeking protection or the person named in a restraining order. We will help you seek the most effective strategy of accomplishing your goals.
If you are the victim of any of the following, it is important to seek a restraining order:
- Terroristic threats
- Threats involving firearms
- Physical violence
- Harassment in person, by phone or through electronic media such as texting or e-mail
If a judge believes that a restraining order is necessary, the judge has the power to order the abuser to end all contact with the victim. This can include staying away from the victim’s home or workplace. In addition, electronic or telephone contact may be barred as well. A judge also has the power to award temporary child custody, as well as child support or spousal support. Once a TRO has been granted, the court can schedule a hearing to determine whether an FRO is necessary.
For these reasons, if you have falsely been accused of abuse, you need a lawyer to fight these allegations. You may be barred from your home and forced to pay support. Our law firm will make the strongest possible case on your behalf.
