New Jersey Domestic Violence Lawyers

New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

Experienced NJ domestic violence lawyers

Our experienced trial lawyers represent those accused of domestic violence and spousal abuse in the New Jersey Family Courts. Unfortunately, claims of spousal abuse are common in highly contested divorce and family law cases. The courts are generally unsympathetic to individuals charged with domestic violence. We will work closely with you and vigorously defend you against these charges.

Further, if you have been the victim of domestic violence, our New Jersey trial lawyers will guide you through the difficult Family Court process, in order to obtain restraining orders against abusive partners. We will also assist you in your efforts to obtain support and temporary custody of your children. In New Jersey, once a restraining order is granted, it is permanent and will remain in place until the plaintiff asks for dismissal or the Family Court grants an application to dismiss the restraints made by the party against whom the restraining order was issued.

If you have been accused of domestic violence against your spouse or partner, it is important to retain an experienced New Jersey domestic violence attorney to guide you through the legal process. Allegations of domestic abuse can have serious consequences in divorce and family law proceedings. In the New Jersey Family Courts, transcripts from domestic violence proceedings can be used against you if you are criminally charged and choose to testify. Likewise, if the alleged victim testifies, the transcript of proceedings can be used to cross-examine that witness at a criminal trial. Therefore, it is especially important that a skilled and experienced domestic violence attorney represent you. Domestic violence proceedings can negatively impact your right to custody of your children and visitation, your obligation to pay child support, and alimony.

Once you have been accused of domestic violence, we recommend that you do not attempt to represent yourself, and that you do not admit to allegations of spousal abuse without first speaking with an attorney. Our experienced Family Court trial lawyers will explain your rights and protect your interests both inside and outside of the courtroom.

It is important to remember that domestic abuse is not just physical in nature, but can be psychological and emotional as well. Contact our experienced New Jersey trial attorneys if you have been accused of, or have been the victim of domestic violence, including physical abuse or assault, harassment or stalking, threatened violence against you or your children, or violation of a restraining order.
