When most people think of domestic violence, they think of punches thrown and physical altercations, but it can occur in other ways as well. In certain circumstances, harassing phone calls, text messages and verbal abuse can also be considered domestic violence. If you have any reason at all to believe that you and your children are the victims of domestic violence, you have a right to seek protection.
As your lawyers, it is our job to use the system to protect you and the people you love from abuse, harassment and physical violence. Collecting evidence, we will build a case to secure an order of protection. Under the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, harassing emails and text messages could be enough to obtain a restraining order.
If there is a divorce or criminal component to your domestic violence case, we have the experience and resources to work with you and protect your rights through all of the court proceedings.
Domestic Violence Defense
All too often, false accusations of domestic violence are used in divorce proceedings as a way to win custody and deny visitation rights. If a temporary restraining order has been entered against you or you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, you want to do everything you can to protect your rights. We can provide you with the domestic violence defense you deserve so you can continue to be there for your children.
