The comments from my colleague are spot on. These interpersonal matters are very difficult for the courts to really be involved with. Obviously, they cannot send someone to follow your ex-wife around all day and document what she says and does. Unless there is evidence of egregious acts, the courts usually will do no more than a slap on the wrist. In some case, the courts would order counseling or mediation to help the parents work these things out.
And that brings me to my next point. At the end of the day, what you are probably really looking for is a healthy and stable relationship with your children. There is just nothing that the courts can do to make that happen. Yes, it is difficult when an ex-spouse tries to poison that relationship, but it's still something that you need to work on yourself.
Finally, if you have an order stating that you get visitation at a certain time and at a certain place, she needs to follow that order. You are definitely able to enforce your rights to visitation that was already ordered.See question

It's not uncommon that police refuse to make an arrest for simple assault that is not domestic violence. You could either move on, or file a criminal complaint of your own at the local municipal court. You should understand, however, that whatever happens with the complain will not directly benefit you. If he is found guilty or pleads guilty to something, he will probably just pay a modest fine. You would need to appear in court if you want to see if through.See question

In order to receive a restraining order, the applicant must show that there is some kind of domestic relationship (like dating, family, child together, etc.), that the defendant committed one of the predicate criminal offenses in the statute, that the applicant is in reasonable fear of future domestic violence, and that the applicant requires the restraining order to prevent future domestic violence. The type of relationship that you described is considered a qualifying domestic relationship (i.e. dating). However, what you describe doesn't seem, to me, like an act of domestic violence. Yes, one person is 18 and the other is 17, but in NJ that type of sexual relationship is not a crime. Having said that, I am not your lawyer and this is not legal advice, but rather some general legal information. If a restraining order case or other type of case is opened against you, then you should absolutely hire a lawyer to help you. Also, you should note that just because something is not illegal, does not mean that it is necessarily a good idea.See question
My wife is seeking a restaining order. At the fro hearing, an ex girlfriend of 3 years from 4 years ago i lived with has volunteered to testify about i was never violent with her. With this help my case? Will it goto credibility or character
Character witnesses are generally not allowed during these types of proceedings. The reason is that your character is not one of the issues in the case. In order for a person to get a FRO, they need to show by a preponderance of the evidence (i.e. more than 50%) that you were in a domestic relationship, that you committed one of the predicate offenses in the statute, and that she is in reasonable fear that domestic violence will continue if there isn't a FRO. That's it.
You should very, very strongly consider getting an attorney to represent you. Many people think that these things are "no big deal" or that "it doesn't matter because I don't want to see her again, anyway." These are incorrect - it is a big deal and a FRO is something that will follow you around and affect you for many years into the future.See question

I think this is your 4th post of the day about your situation. Procedurally, yes, you may file an emergency application (called an Order to Show Cause), but it's impossible for anyone on this site to tell you whether a judge will grant it. Clearly, you are involved in a difficult situation and you, understandably, have many questions. Therefore, it is important that you retain a lawyer to help you through this, especially since your husband has a lawyer. Only your lawyer can go over the facts of your case and advise you on how to proceed and assist you with that process. If you truly cannot afford one, you should at least consult with Legal Aid for help. Even if they cannot assign you a free lawyer, they can at least point you in the right direction regarding assistance for families (like TANF). Finally, regarding your housing situation, you should note that it is illegal in NJ for a landlord to kick out a tenant. They need to file an eviction proceeding and then only a judge can order the eviction and only the sheriff can perform a lock-out. Hope this helps and best of luck!See question
I was walking with my 5 month old attached to me on a carrier and suddenly I slipped and fell on my left side . My child's head almost hit the floor. Manager said " do you need an ambulance and show me where ." I said no. I pointed and he replied ...
You may have a case, or you may not - it really depends. In any fall-down case you need to be able to show that the store did something wrong and that you were injured. Just because an accident occurred does not mean that the store is automatically responsible. If you fell for no apparent reason or you don't know why you fell, then it would be impossible to prove your case. Also, your case wouldn't be worth anything if you "almost" got hurt. But just because you refused an ambulance doesn't mean that you are not injured. Sometimes people feel that they are just bruised but go to a doctor a few days later and it turns out to be more serious than they thought.
You would need to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer and explain more of the specific facts of your situation. An attorney would be able to tell you pretty easily whether or not your have a case once they know all of the details.See question
I had an accident while driving with a learner's permit. I received 2 tickets. One for driving without a license and careless driving. The judge postponed my trial until I got my provisional driver's license. The driving without a license was dis...
As my colleague pointed out, provisionally licensed drivers are not eligible for a zero point ticket. I agree that an option is to make an application to vacate the plea. However, if you win that you will be back to square one with both tickets. You will have the option of paying them or going to trial. If that is something you want, then you probably should hire a lawyer to help you with that.
As an aside, you should note that the municipal court does not impose points and has no power over the Motor Vehicle Commission. Only the MVC imposes points. So the court did not "violate" the plea agreement by promising you no points and then imposing points. However, the plea was made in reliance upon the understanding (which was ultimately mistaken) that there would be no points.See question
of our case. If the judge approves a motion in limine that eliminates all those witnesses, the full trial would be based solely on documents and statutes with no witnesses, similar to a summary judgment. What would be the difference between a sum...
There really is no such thing as a trial with no witnesses. If a matter is argued on the papers and based on law alone, then that is summary judgment. Trials are for testimony along with the other evidence so that the trier of fact can determine how much credibility and weight to ascribe each piece of testimony and evidence. And you usually need a witness of some kind in order to introduce documents into evidence (there are certainly exceptions, though).
If your case is going to trial and you asked the judge to bar all of the other side's witnesses from testifying, it is inconceivable to me that the judge will agree with you. I don't know anything about your specific case and, yes, anything is possible. But I cannot think of any situation where such a thing would occur. Normally, as an attorney, if I believe that the court can rule on the issue based solely on the papers, I would have to file a summary judgment motion.See question

It is not "harassment" - it is your civic duty to appear when summoned. However, every time that I have ever picked a jury the judge asks the potential jurors if there is a reason why they cannot serve on the jury. Many people voice concerns about employment and family obligations. The judge listens to those concerns and makes a call. But yes, you must still appear even if you think that you'll be sent home once a judge sees you. Spending a couple hours at the court house is not the end of the world. If you want to avoid having to appear in the first place, you can renounce your citizenship and move abroad. Or commit a felony and get convicted - felons don't qualify for jury duty.See question
