Domestic Violence Attorney in Monmouth County

Domestic violence generally involves physical abuse or the threat of physical harm to the victims. Approximately one out of every four women suffer from some form of domestic violence during their lifetime. While women are in the majority for those who experience, both men and women can find themselves victims of it. It is more common to think of it as shoving or hitting, but it can include restraining a person, as well as inflicting emotional or sexual abuse. It is treatment that is unwanted and unacceptable. Domestic violence will often be a pattern of behavior rather than one isolated instance, and a victim may be subject to it for any length of time.

If you have been the victim of domestic violence then you may be considering a divorce. Additionally, if you have children then they may have been the victims of this domestic violence and you may be considering relocation after your divorce. It is imperative that you protect yourself and your children from harm, however there are some legal obstacles that can be an issue in relocation if your ex-spouse is a biological parent of your children.

Involving the Court

Domestic violence is a serious situation and the court will want to know about it. It can have many implications in your divorce, including issues of dividing child custody. Whether the abuse included your children or just you, it is still something that the judge should be informed about. Just because your children haven't been victims now doesn't mean they won't be in the future. There may even be the need to involve the court for the purpose of protective orders to limit the contact that a person suspected of violence can have with the victim.
