Cant predict what a judge will do. Ex may have other evidence and it may not be legitimate/real. You may want to at least consult with a local lawyer to review your options and risks.
Impossible to tell the outcome without concrete evidence of the claims. Consult an attorney with what you do have for advice.
Call for a free consultation at 727-937-1400 or visit us on the Web at www.serviceandjustice.com.
If that's his sole piece of evidence, the Judge would wish to hear from you as to the context. It's basically a credibility call on the part of the Judge to determine whether it was a "real threat" or whether you were just blowing off steam. Thus, I highly advise you to consult with a NYC Domestic Violence lawyer.

Consult a lawyer.
IMPORTANT: Mr. Murray's response is NOT legal advice and does NOT create an attorney-client relationship. You should NOT rely on this response. Mr. Murray's response was generated without conducting a full inquiry as would occur during an attorney-client consultation. It is likely that the response above may be made less accurate, or become entirely inaccurate, as you, i.e. the questioner, disclose additional facts that should only be discussed during a private attorney-client consultation. I strongly recommend that you consult an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state (or, in the case of immigration law, an attorney in ANY state), whereupon all relevant facts will be discussed. All responses posted by Mr. Murray on Avvo.com are intended as general information for the education of the public, and not for any specific individual. For persons located in New Jersey: To the extent that Mr. Murray's profile can be considered an advertisement in New Jersey, which is denied, be advised that NO ASPECT OF THIS ADVERTISEMENT HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY.
