Domestic Violence And Divorce

Domestic Violence and Divorce

Upset child with her parents fighting behind herDivorce is never an easy thing to go through, but it is made worse when you have to worry about domestic violence. If your spouse tends to get violent with you or you are afraid that he or she will become violent now that you are seeking a divorce, you are probably wondering how you can be protected from domestic violence during your case. Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect you from domestic violence throughout your divorce.

The first thing you’ll want to do is contact one of our family lawyers in New Jersey at Edens Law Group. They know all the laws pertaining to family law, including divorce and domestic violence cases. Regardless of whether your spouse has been violent to you in the past or you simply have reason to fear that he or she might become violent in the wake of divorce proceedings, you are entitled to protection. Family lawyers in New Jersey like the ones at Edens Law Group can help you get a Final Restraining Order that will protect you from your spouse.

A Final Restraining Order is a court-ordered mandate that prohibits the offender being within so many feet of the victim. This means that even if you and your spouse live together, if you get a Final Restraining Order against him or her, he or she will have to live somewhere else since he or she will not be allowed to reside under the same roof with you.

While it might sadden you to think that someone you once thought you loved enough to marry would physically harm you, during a divorce, tensions are high and domestic violence can become a very real threat in some cases. Having an experienced attorney on your side can make a world of difference in ensuring that your rights are protected. Contact our office today to discuss your available options.
