Phantom Orders of Protection

The warm summer days continue to pass by and as August approaches, the court appearances seem to get crazier and crazier. Today's dilemma: How do you vacate a temporary order of protection that nobody can find in the court system?

I spent the morning in one court, who explained that they didn't have the file. Then it was on to another court, who had issued the order, but who didn't have the file anymore because they had already transferred the file. Throw in on top that the order was improperly issued, without an expiration date, and was due to expire last week, and you have one great mystery for a warm July Tuesday.

On top of this fun, my practice is expanding back into New Jersey in September, so I have spent some time preparing to open a second office in New Jersey. I never thought it would happen this fast, but an office became available in a great location and a great opportunity to expand was upon me. So on top of all the legal work, August will bring lots of work to get that office up and running after Labor Day.

As always, for more information or to schedule a consultation, please call me (718.568.0221) or visit my website (AndrewMAyers.com) for more information. And coming soon, look for a New Jersey telephone number...
