Is there a motion that can be filed in the family court that would allow a mother and three minor children that are currently in a domestic violence shelter to stay with family or friends temporarily in another state jurisdiction until custody and Court proceedings are decided by a judge?
The focus in a Domestic Violence Trial, for a Final Restraining Order is very narrow. If the Court decides that you are entitled to an FRO, then you could be entitled to full and exclusive possession of the former marital residence. You and your children do not have to be the ones to leave. So you...Read more »

If a 16 year old's mom gives permission for them to move into their grandparents house, but their father doesn't, do they need both parents permission, or can they move out with only their moms permission.

Unfortunately, you get what you paid for. The simple fact is you had an TRO in place, and violated it. I realize this does seem like a harsh punishment, but no one here knows the facts of your case.

Sending the certified letter you suggested would not violate the “no contact” directive of the restraining order? He won’t pay for removal, I’m sure, so can My sister take him to small claims court without violating no contact directive?
I was unaware of the "No Contact" order. So file a complaint in small claims for cost of removal. You can fo this pro se. Go to www.NJCourts.gov. The Claims Division may decide not to hear the matter as the appropriate Court would be the one that issued the 'No Contact' order...Read more »
My sister in NJ allowed a disabled vet friend (at the time) to live in her house in exchange for help with upkeep of the premises, which he did not do as time passed. He gave her money towards his groceries. There was no written agreement and no lease.
I've been in a relationship for 6 years now and he had a nasty divorce/custody battle in the first three years. His ex-wife filed multiple false police reports against me thinking that it would sway the custody verdict but she ultimately lost custody. In one of the reports, she coached her... Read more »
