Abuse Prevention Order, VACATED

May 14th 2012
Abuse Prevention Order Chapter 209A
Client was a hard working and all around easy-going single dad trying his best to be a father to his young daughter, with whom his ex had custody. His ex went to police one day stating she was in fear of serious imminent harm since client (she alleged) threatened him. At the 10-day hearing, client's ex-girlfriend reasserted all the claims she had made before and stated others such as their daughter came home with a bruised cheek and a chipped tooth. Attorney Barabino had both his client testify and his client's mother---both of whom provided documentation to the court, which included text messages and police reports. The judge credited both of Attorney Barabino’s witnesses and as a result vacated the restraining order in its entirety.
RESULT: Ten-day Hearing Outcome Results in Favor of Client, RESTRAINING ORDER VACATED.
