Legal Answers
156 Questions Answered
Q. What are my options if part of a Final Judgement of Divorce is dropping an FRO and it has not been done yet?
A: Not sure if you're suggesting that she changed her mind or simply forgot to drop the FRO. If it's the latter, try asking her (very, very nicely) if she could bring a copy of the Order to the DV unit, explain the situation, and request that the FRO be dismissed. She may still need to go before a judge to have it dismissed. If she does this and has the FRO dismissed, you should consider buying her flowers. Remember, your goal is to keep the court out of your life as much as possible. Otherwise, if she just decided to ignore the Court Order, you can file a motion to enforce litigant's rights. What you should keep in mind is that TRO's and FRO's can ruin your life with nasty collateral consequences. So address the matter ASAP. Good luck!
Q. I purchased a defective piece of furniture (paid $6,572) from a furniture store, Ship Bottom NJ
A: Yes, you do. Sellers do have a right to cure any defect but only if their efforts are reasonable and don't amount to tinkering. New Jersey provides several remedies for unfair commercial transactions. These can be found in Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code, The Consumer Fraud Act, Contract law, etc. Which law applies however depends on the facts of your case. But you'll most likely need an attorney to get the problem resolved.
Q. My husband was innocent but charged with domestic violence in NJ due to my emotions, ignorance, and cultural difference
A: If it's a civil matter, you can drop the case yourself (without a lawyer) by contacting the Domestic Violence Unit and explaining why the case should be dropped. But you may still need to go to court and appear before a judge. If you want the case dismissed and there's no justification not to do so, the judge must issue an Order of Dismissal. By the way, you're also very correct about the police in NJ vs. China. New Jersey no longer encourages police to act as counselors in domestic cases. That ended sometime in the 90's. Today, in most cases, police don't counsel the parties, they just arrest "the bigger of the two"... and that's usually the man.
