According to the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, domestic abuse can be committed against a current or a former spouse, someone you used to date or are currently dating, the parent of your child, or a member of your household (past and present). If you are a victim of domestic violence, you have the opportunity to obtain a restraining order. Our Middlesex County divorce attorney can also help you out of your abusive marriage and help you pursue a safe child custody arrangement.
From the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM you may file for a restraining order in the Superior Court in the County in which you live. Outside of these hours you can file through your police department as a Judge will be on-call no matter the time to determine whether to grant your request. If a Judge determines a restraining order is warranted, they will issue the same and the other party will then be served by the police. The restraining order will stay in place until the parties appear in Court to determine whether an act of domestic violence occurred or whether a Final Restraining Order should be issued. Under both a temporary and a final restraining order, the abuser will be barred from having access to the victim. In addition, the Judge will determine custody and may order the abuser pay support in the case the parties are married or live together. The Judge may also order that the abuser attend treatment for anger management.
If someone has filed a restraining order against you and you must appear in court, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney. Oftentimes a determination by the Judge will be based on which side sounds more credible. Without experienced representation your life may be affected long term as a final restraining order appears on background checks. Do not delay and seek help to defend against false accusations that may have been made against you.
