February 17, 2009

SANDRA L. GOLON,*FN1 PLAINTIFF-RESPONDENT,
v.
WILLIAM C. STANKEVITCH, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.



On appeal from Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Family Part, Passaic County, Docket Nos. FV-16-000702-08 and FV-000706-08.

RECORD IMPOUNDED

NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION

Before Judges Skillman and Graves.

Defendant William C. Stankevitch appeals from a final restraining order entered on December 18, 2007, pursuant to the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, N.J.S.A. 2C:25-17 to -35.

After considering these arguments in light of the record and the applicable law, we affirm.

In her complaint, plaintiff alleged that defendant told her "I'm gonna get you and your [f]ucking mother . . . when I get finished with you . . . you'll be sorry." In addition, plaintiff alleged a prior history of domestic violence consisting of "past incidents of verbal harassment."

The parties were the only witnesses to testify regarding an incident that took place at plaintiff's home on Saturday, September 22, 2007. Plaintiff testified defendant became upset and threatened her and her mother after she told him she was aware of his relationship with another woman. Plaintiff stated she asked defendant to "take his things and leave," and further testified:

A: Close, right next to where the island comes together ...
