Family Law And Domestic Violence In New Jersey
The New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act defines “domestic violence” as nearly any kind of abuse that occurs between individuals who share the same residence (even if they are not related) or who have had a prior romantic relationship.

The following can be considered domestic violence in a family law matter:
