Domestic Violence Charges In New Jersey
In New Jersey, domestic violence includes not only physical assault but also harassment, mental abuse and terroristic threats. When the police are called with a report of domestic violence, the accused will be arrested and taken into custody whether or not there are signs of physical injury. This will lead to the court issuing a restraining order and, depending on the circumstances surrounding the arrest, may result in criminal charges as well.
When a client comes to us for help regarding domestic violence charges, the first thing we do is take the time to understand all the unique details of their case. We are not afraid of putting up a strong fight for our clients, and we do not back down when things get difficult. While we initially try to resolve things through mediation, we are ready to press charges or do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety and protect the rights of our clients.
