What Acts Are Classified as Domestic Violence?

Any instance of domestic violence, no matter how small or insignificant seeming is never deserved, and it is often never expected. In fact, individuals may have a hard time identifying abuse even when it is happening to them. This is relatively common and at Stolfe Zeigler New Jersey Divorce Group, we believe that identifying abuse is the first step toward taking legal action.

According to the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, there are several situations that qualify for temporary or final restraining order.

These include:

  • Assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Terrorist threats
  • False imprisonment
  • Kidnapping

Our South Jersey domestic violence lawyers are here to help you understand the legal options of your case. We can help you through the process of filing a restraining order, limiting, or entirely preventing the other person involved from contacting you in any way. We can also take actions to request temporary custody orders to protect children from exposure to further abuse.

Restraining orders, whether temporary or final, can also limit and place restrictions upon the abuser’s parenting time, and may even stipulate that the individual receives various forms of treatment. If you are a victim of domestic violence and are concerned about your own well-being and the safety of your children, contact our firm right away. We are sensitive to the needs of domestic violence victims, as well as those accused of this crime.

The accusation of domestic violence is serious and something the court does not take lightly. It's important you contact our domestic violence attorneys to help you build your defense. Our lawyers can help you gather evidence, proof, and/or witnesses to support your case. Our attorneys provide our clients with aggressive advocacy and will do everything we can to secure a positive outcome.
