New Jersey Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer & Trial Attorney
Domestic violence charges in New Jersey can have a tremendous impact on your life. Not only are they some of the most serious charges that most people will ever face, the penalties and consequences can drastically change the fabric of your personal life.
The real impact of a domestic violence charge often comes not from the charge itself, but from the temporary restraining order that is issued when a charge is filed. Our firm’s attorneys offer experienced defense against both the domestic violence charge itself and the temporary restraining order.
Within 10 days of receiving a temporary restraining order, a hearing will be held to determine whether that order should be made permanent. At this hearing, testimony will be heard from both the defendant and the alleged victim.
Possible restrictions that may be part of a temporary or permanent restraining order include:
- No returning home
- No unsupervised visits with children
- No possession of firearms
- No use of alcohol
Further, an alcohol evaluation and/or anger management class may be part of the conditions if the conviction is not avoided.
