If you’re the person who is alleged to have committed the domestic violence, it is important to know that the state of New Jersey takes domestic violence accusations incredibly seriously. Alleged victims of domestic violence have enhanced rights, and it’s important that you know what your rights are so that you can protect yourself.
If, for instance, the allegation is that there was an assault, the potential consequences for conviction of an assault are enhanced by virtue of them happening in the context of a domestic violence relationship. It’s imperative that you consult with an attorney who practices domestic violence law so that you can adequately defend yourself because the consequences are so severe.
