If you feel you have been a victim of any of domestic violence, you do not have to tolerate it. The New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act applies to 14 specific acts committed against another person with whom the alleged actor has or had a certain relationship. These acts include homicide, assault, terroristic threats, kidnapping, criminal restraint, false imprisonment, sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, lewdness, criminal mischief, burglary, criminal trespass, harassment or stalking. Of course, these are very complex statute, and if you believe you have fallen victim under one of these laws, you will likely want an experienced, knowledgeable attorney by your side to advise you, guide you through the process, and get the result you need to bring a swift, immediate, and permanent end to the violence.
