Domestic violence is a serious problem in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Each year, countless spouses, domestic partners and other family members fall victim to a wide variety of forms of threats and abuse. While domestic violence may result in criminal charges, this is not often the case, and it is important for victims to seek appropriate restraining orders and other remedies in order to protect their safety and their legal rights.

Facing false allegations of domestic violence can have serious repercussions as well; and, unfortunately, many people – both men and women – find themselves facing restraining order hearings arising out of unfounded and unsubstantiated complaints of abuse. If you have been accused of domestic violence, you need to defend yourself, and the attorneys at the Law Office of Blake W. Rush can help you fight to avoid the far-reaching consequences of being found liable in court.

Understanding Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a broad term that refers to threats and acts of abuse committed against certain family members and other cohabitants. Domestic violence can take many forms and can occur under a wide variety of family circumstances, including:
  • Physical abuse/assaults, stalking, threats of harm, and verbal abuse or harassment (depending on the state) are typical domestic violence examples.
  • Although traditionally thought of as an offense involving spouses, the fact is harassment, assaults, and threats against cohabitants, unmarried individuals who have a child together, boyfriends, girlfriends, and other family members can constitute domestic violence as well.
  • Both women and men can become victims of domestic violence.
