Domestic Violence in New Jersey
Domestic Violence. There are few subjects that have recently received as much attention--in New Jersey and across the country--and rightfully so.
Statistics tell us that one in every four women experiences domestic violence in her lifetime. The cost of that violence is several billion dollars each year for medical and mental health services.
Domestic Violence is not confined to women. Many men are also domestic violence victims. And the worst thing is-most cases of domestic violence are not reported to the police.
Do Not Ignore Your Rights and Responsibilities
Ignoring your rights and responsibilities is not a good option. If you live in New Jersey and you're the victim of domestic violence, call the police right away.

Whether you are the victim or the accused, you have the right to have a New Jersey Family Court Judge conduct a full and fair hearing, at which you can be represented by a New Jersey Domestic Violence Lawyer.
