Who Qualifies as a Domestic Violence Abuser?

According to the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, domestic abuse can be committed against a current or a former spouse, someone you used to date or are currently dating, the parent of your child, or a member of your household (past and present). If you are a victim of domestic violence, you have the opportunity to obtain a restraining order. Our Middlesex County divorce attorneys can also help you out of your abusive marriage and help you pursue a safe child custody arrangement.

Forms of Domestic Violence

Abuse does not have to be physical in order to qualify for a restraining order. There are different acts of abuse that are considered domestic violence:

  • Simple Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Harassment
  • Criminal restraint
  • Terroristic threats
  • Kidnapping
  • Criminal mischief
  • Criminal trespass
  • Stalking
  • Sexual assault
  • Verbal/emotional abuse

How to File For A Restraining Order in New Jersey

From the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM you may file for a restraining order in the Superior Court in the County in which you live. Outside of these hours, you can file through your police department as a Judge will be on-call no matter the time to determine whether to grant your request. If a Judge determines a restraining order is warranted, they will issue the same and the other party will then be served by the police. The restraining order will stay in place until the parties appear in Court to determine whether an act of domestic violence occurred or whether a Final Restraining Order should be issued. Under both a temporary and a final restraining order, the abuser will be barred from having access to the victim. In addition, the Judge will determine custody and may order the abuser pay support in the case the parties are married or live together. The Judge may also order that the abuser attend treatment for anger management.

If a Restraining Order has Been Filed Against You

If someone has filed a restraining order against you and you must appear in court, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney. Oftentimes a determination by the Judge will be based on which side sounds more credible. Without experienced representation, your life may be affected long term as a final restraining order appears on background checks. Do not delay and seek help to defend against false accusations that may have been made against you.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!!”

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”
