Domestic Violence Leveraging Our Nearly Two Decades of Experience to Protect Your Future

Domestic Violence Attorneys in New Jersey

Get Years of Experience on Your Side

What starts out as a minor family argument can quickly escalate into something far more serious. Disagreements can sometimes get out of control, especially when tensions are high, sometimes leading to arrests, forfeiture, and the imposition of a restraining order. Within a couple of days of the arrest, you may find yourself before a family court judge for a determination of whether a final restraining order should be imposed and legally owned weapons permanently forfeited.

Domestic violence charges are usually handled with speed and efficiency, which can make it exceedingly difficult for the accused to get his or her bearings. The laws regarding domestic violence are complex, which is why it is of the utmost importance to have the support of an experienced, skilled domestic violence defense attorney.

At Roberts & Teeter, we highly recommend seeking counsel with a skilled domestic violence lawyer in New Jersey as soon as possible if you are charged with domestic violence. The consequences of domestic violence charges can be life-altering and could seriously impact your personal life, professional career, and freedom. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of domestic violence cases, so you can be confident in our abilities and our commitment to your case.

Understanding Domestic Violence Crimes

In the state of New Jersey, domestic violence is considered any physical, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse of a family member. The threat of any of these abuses can also be classified as domestic violence. The victim could be the abuser’s spouse, ex-spouse, romantic partner, or household member, and must be over the age of 18 years old.

Even though a criminal act can be categorized as domestic violence, these charges usually accompany the underlying crime, which may include:

  • Homicide
  • Assault
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment
  • Sexual assault
  • Lewdness
  • Burglary
  • Harassment
  • Stalking

The laws prohibiting domestic violence are found in Chapter 25 of the New Jersey Criminal Code. They provide which criminal acts or offenses give rise to domestic violence (see 2C:25-19), the procedure for arrest and forfeiture of weapons (see 2C:25-21), the procedure for an emergent hearing in family court (see 2C:25-28), the imposition of final restraining orders, and the laws regarding contempt for violating an existing restraining order (see 2C:25-30 through 2C:25-31).

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence in New Jersey?

The consequences for domestic violence will vary based on each case, but may include:

  • Having a temporary or final restraining order filed against you
  • Seizure of weapons - if weapons are believed to have been a factor in the domestic violence claim, they may be taken for investigation purposes
  • Misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the case, prior convictions, accompanying crimes, etc.
