Spousal Abuse in Monmouth County
Protecting the Rights & Futures of Victims
Spousal abuse can take many forms, but it always causes a severe disruption in a family, with emotional and physical pain suffered by not only the spouse being abused but by the family as well.
Spousal abuse can include such actions as verbal threats of violence, other types of criminal harassment, physical assault, sexual assault, trespassing, burglary, and kidnapping.
Abused Spouses: Your Rights Under New Jersey Law
New Jersey law allows recourse to an abused spouse through several means, which include:
- Filing a domestic violence complaint and seeking a restraining order
- Filing for divorce
- Pursuing a legal tort claim against the abuser, where the abused spouse sues the abuser for money damages
- Filing criminal charges, which is independent from any legal action your attorney would take for you
As an abused spouse, there are many avenues available to you under New Jersey law. To know which is the best one, consult our team today.
