Domestic Violence Act in New Jersey
Our New Jersey Courts have also recognized that the Domestic Violence Act is not a primer for social etiquette and should not be used as a sword to wield against every unpleasant encounter or annoying interaction that occurs between household members, spouses, parents or those who have a dating relationship.
It is not uncommon for a spouse in a divorce action to pursue a restraining order to obtain sole possession of the marital residence or an advantage in a custody action. The Wilentz Family Law Team offers substantial experience in these delicate situations.
If you are a victim of domestic violence or have been served with a Restraining Order as they purported aggressor, it is important to understand your rights and protect your legal interests. As experienced Family Law Attorneys and skilled litigators, our Family Law Team handles many domestic violence matters throughout New Jersey Courts.
