New Jersey’s Domestic Violence Laws: What To Know

In New Jersey, domestic violence is a pattern of abuse from one partner in a domestic or familial relationship toward another. It can include:

  • Physical violence
  • Threats
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Kidnapping or isolation
  • Financial control
  • Sexual abuse

If you have suffered domestic violence from a partner, former partner or relative, you have the right to file a criminal complaint and to seek a temporary restraining order (TRO). We can help you understand your options and assist you with the legal process of filing a complaint and/or obtaining a TRO. Our goal  ADR to resolve issues out of court; however, if it is necessary to protect you, we will not hesitate to go to trial.

Ramatowski & Schwartz is here for LGBTQ clients who face domestic violence from a same-sex partner or a family member.
