Under New Jersey law, domestic violence is committed by a person who has been close to you in your life including: a spouse, or ex-spouse, members of your household (past and current), any current or former boyfriend or girlfriend, or the parent of your children (or expected child). You do not need to be legally related to or currently living with an abuser to qualify for protection under this law.
Domestic violence comes in many forms and can range from physical and sexual assault, to verbal, emotional and physical abuse. Simple or aggravated assault, harassment and terroristic threats, are also considered violent acts.
While many attorneys are only looking out for the plaintiff or abused party in these cases there are many instances where the defendant has been falsely accused. I can provide unbiased legal advice to either party. Call today for a free consultation: 732-742-5556.
