What is Domestic Violence?
Under New Jersey law, domestic violence can include a variety of harmful and physically aggressive actions that may or may not involve weapons. The Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (1991) provides sanctions and possible reliefs for victims, such as temporary custody of children, medical coverage to the victim and dependents, and rent or mortgage payments. In addition, it enforces prohibitions against defendants and can stop them from contacting the victim or others involved, going back to the scene of the violence, or possessing weapons.
Domestic violence in New Jersey includes:
- Criminal mischief or trespass
- Terrorist threats
- Sexual assault or lewdness
- Criminal sexual contact or restraint
- False imprisonment
New Jersey allows for a temporary restraining order to be filed against a defendant accused of domestic violence in the Superior Court, Chancery Division, or Family Part.
