Domestic Violence Attorney in Monmouth County

In New Jersey, domestic violence involves physical abuse, the threat of physical harm, alarming and harassing statements and or many acts that victims are often not aware are covered under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act. While women are in the majority for those who are abused, both men and women can find themselves victims of it. It is more common to think of domestic violence as shoving or hitting, but it can include restraining a person, as well as inflicting emotional or sexual abuse. It will often be a pattern of behavior rather than one isolated instance, and a victim may be subjected to it for any length of time.

If you have been the victim of domestic violence then you may be considering a divorce. It is imperative that you hire a family law attorney who knows the laws involving domestic violence and if applicable, how this may impact your divorce.
