Understanding Domestic Violence in New Jersey

Domestic violence in New Jersey covers a range of actions beyond physical harm. The law recognizes the nuanced nature of these offenses and their profound impact on individuals and families.

New Jersey’s Prevention of Domestic Violence Act provides that domestic violence charges can attach to a number of different alleged crimes where a pattern of abuse in a relationship between two parties can be shown. Contrary to popular belief, actual physical violence is not always necessary to support a domestic violence charge—in some cases, emotional, economic, or psychological abuse can be sufficient.

Some categories of domestic violence in New Jersey include:

An accusation alone can lead to immediate legal consequences, such as a temporary restraining order (TRO). This TRO, issued even without a conviction, can limit your contact with family and attendance at community events. Given these far-reaching effects, professional legal guidance is essential from the outset.

Our lawyers know that every domestic violence case is unique and take the time necessary to get to know you on a personal level so that we can provide the most effective advice possible in your case. Contact our New Jersey domestic violence and restraining order lawyers today to discuss your options.

In New Jersey, restraining orders serve as a legal means to protect individuals from potential harm. They can include various conditions, such as communication bans, weapons prohibitions, and temporary child custody arrangements.

It is important to note that a TRO can be issued even before you have been convicted of any domestic violence crime and can prevent you from seeing your children and being present at family and community events. Violating the TRO is a criminal offense in and of itself, and because of the low standard of evidence required to obtain a TRO, guidance from experienced legal counsel is necessary even at this relatively early stage in the criminal process.

A TRO can remain in place at the discretion of the judge, and can be extended or replaced with a final restraining order if it is not removed. Once a TRO is finalized, it can become difficult to remove and can have consequences that may be difficult to initially anticipate.

Our attorneys at Davis Law Firm, LLC offer comprehensive guidance in navigating the complexities of restraining orders, ensuring that your rights are protected while striving for a favorable resolution. Contact our restraining order and domestic violence attorneys in Trenton, NJ to discuss your options today.
