Domestic Violence

Obtaining A Restraining Order

With escalating concerns about domestic violence and abuse, the New Jersey legislature enacted the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act. It is designed to give victims of spousal or child abuse a way to quickly and effectively use the power of the courts to obtain a restraining order against an alleged batterer.

Unfortunately, this is a difficult process to handle on your own, especially when you have to deal with the stress and anxiety of domestic violence. Let us help you with this process.

Getting Protection from Stalking and Harassment

The Domestic Violence Act was also created to help domestic violence victims have access to quick legal protection from both stalking and harassment. I will work to get you and your family the protections you need for physical safety and peace of mind.
