Domestic Violence

Morristown Domestic Violence Lawyers

family law 2At the law office of Salvaggio Garibian, LLC, in Morristown, New Jersey, our attorneys are advocates for victims of domestic violence. We help battered spouses file domestic violence complaints, obtain restraining orders, file for divorce, obtain child custody and support, and assist in the pursuit of criminal charges against the spouse that caused you harm.

Domestic violence comes in many forms, but the most common are assault, threats, and sexual harassment. The abuse does not have to be physical, but can be any behavior that causes the victim fear for his or her safety. Examples include verbal threats to strike, shove, kick or sexually assault the victim. Other forms of domestic violence include homicide, kidnapping, criminal restraint, false imprisonment, criminal sexual contact, lewdness, criminal mischief, burglary and trespassing.

In New Jersey, the victim must be 18 years old or older to file a domestic violence complaint in court and must have been abused by either his or her spouse, former spouse, present or former household member or a person with whom the victim has a child in common. The court does not distinguish between victims based on physical or psychological condition or by sexual orientation.

A temporary restraining order, or order of protection, may be granted to prevent the abusive spouse from contacting the victim. The abuser may be required to pay child support or support for the victim and may also be required to reimburse the victim for medical treatment that resulted from the violence. Additionally, temporary custody of any children may be granted to the victim.

If you have been physically or verbally assaulted by your spouse, call the police immediately. Once you are safe, you should speak to an experienced Morristown domestic violence lawyer. Contact the law firm of Salvaggio Garibian, LLC today. We assist victims of spousal abuse throughout northern and central New Jersey, including Morris, Somerset, Passaic, Union, Sussex, Essex and Warren counties.
