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

  • 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!!”

  • 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.”

  • Extraordinary star lawyer; gets results for you and your child

    “Having been a legal professional for over 20 years with the top and largest law firms in NY, FL and DC., I can say, without reservation, Elizabeth is the caliber of attorney that rivals the best of the best. With only two hours to prepare for an emergent custody order to show cause hearing; Elizabeth was extremely knowledgeable of the applicable family laws and was very prepared to present the case for my son and the safety of his child. Elizabeth demonstrated the right temperament to present the facts of the case with such detail and eloquence without agitating the judge knowing exactly the exact points to drive home. A measure of a good attorney is that he/she is prepared and can communicate effectively to the judge without resorting to childish tactics or attacks against the opposing attorney or the other parent which Elizabeth embodies. Elizabeth was composed, experienced and tactful that is very hard to find in attorneys today. Finding a reliable, honest, and dedicated attorney is not an easy task. The process itself can be as tiresome, complicated, and confusing. Not surprising to me Elizabeth is poised to be rated one of the top divorce and custody lawyers in NJ/NYC and possibly the nation. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top notch family law attorney. ”

    “Elizabeth represented me in my divorce in 2014-2015. She was responsive, listened to my thoughts and concerns, advocated diligently for me, and was a straight shooter. Highly recommended.”

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney. ”
