New Jersey Domestic Violence Laws
New Jersey takes domestic violence very seriously. Persons accused of domestic violence face severe legal consequences. In addition to being evicted from his or her residence, a domestic violence complaint can lead to the assessment of money damages, counsel fees, and other economic repercussions. Child custody, support, use of marital assets, and other forms of emergent relief may also be regularly addressed during these proceedings. Because the stakes are so high and the implications vast, you need an experienced domestic violence attorney to inform you of your rights and to obtain justice and protection.
A person can request a temporary restraining order for a variety of reasons, some of which include:
- Terroristic threats
- Criminal mischief
- Criminal trespass
- Sexual assault
- Criminal restraint
- False imprisonment
When a temporary restraining order is issued, the court will hear the case within 10 days. As a result, both sides are under time pressure in defending and prosecuting these cases. In fact, very few cases in our legal system move with the speed of domestic violence hearings. It is critical that you retain an attorney who is prepared to work expeditiously on your matter and to treat these cases with the importance they deserve.
