Compassionate Guidance During Domestic Violence Cases

Under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1991, the New Jersey courts conduct hearings to determine whether persons protected under the Act have been the victims of domestic violence. The act basically protects everyone in a household from violence perpetrated by another member of the household. It is designed to protect victims by removing a perpetrator from the home and preventing the perpetrator from having contact with the victim and other members of the victim's family.

As these matters are extremely delicate in nature, you need a lawyer on your side with plenty of experience in family law cases. Sal DePinto has been helping clients in domestic violence cases for close to 30 years in Hamilton. Feel free to call him at 609-807-8942 to set up a consultation.

Why Restraining Orders Are Generally Signed

Judges typically sign temporary restraining orders when facts reveal possible domestic violence. Within ten days of the date of the temporary restraining order a hearing must be held to determine whether there has been an instance of domestic violence. If the court finds that an act of domestic violence has been committed, the temporary restraining order is converted to a final restraining order. If not, the temporary restraining order is dismissed.

Wrongful Accusations Of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is sometimes used as a way of wrongfully trying to get someone out of the house. Individuals wrongfully accused of domestic violence need an attorney who knows the law and can properly defend them. Individuals who have been found to have committed domestic violence will also be subject to weapons forfeiture, not to mention possible restrictions on being able to see their children and difficulty obtaining access to their personal property.
