Situations involving Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can happen within a marriage and other partnerships.

We take the time to understand your situation and gather evidence to show that violence or abuse was a factor in your relationship.
Actions that are classified as domestic violence include:
- Threats of violence
- Physical abuse
- Verbal abuse

The relationship between the abuser and the victim is considered in domestic violence cases. Courts in New Jersey consider domestic relationships to include current and former spouses, dating couples, housemates, and people who have children in common. Under the law, provisions may be available to you to help you escape the violence and start your life anew.
Ensuring Your Safety
The specific provisions that are needed vary from case to case. If you are going through a divorce, it may be necessary to have a restraining order to ensure the safety of you and your family during the divorce process. Relocation orders may be required in some situations to allow you to start your life over away from the abusive partner. Your Jersey City domestic violence attorney will evaluate your situation and recommend the best way to proceed.
