Domestic violence involves the physical act or verbal threat of violence. It can also relate to a continuous pattern of harassing behavior. At the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC, I offer legal services to men and women facing matters involving domestic violence.
As an East Brunswick and Freehold family law attorney, I have more than two decades of experience helping people who have been accused of committing an act of domestic violence as well as representing victims in these situations. I have successfully tried many of these cases obtaining dismissals of the temporary restraining orders.
Domestic Violence Laws in New Jersey
New Jersey considers domestic violence as a serious offense. An alleged domestic violence offender can be arrested even without independent witnesses or signs of physical injuries.
- Under New Jersey law, there are two aspects of domestic violence cases:
Family law court can issue a restraining order that instructs the alleged offender to refrain from any contact with the victim. A criminal charge from the municipal or superior court can also be issued against the defendant. The court hearings for both the family court's restraining order and the criminal court's charges can be held simultaneously and are not dependent on one another.
If you or your spouse has been arrested based on assumptions of physical or verbal abuse, do not hesitate to obtain the legal assistance of the East Brunswick domestic violence lawyer at the firm. As both a family law attorney and criminal defense lawyer, I am equipped to handle both aspects of a domestic violence case.
