Domestic violence is taken very seriously in New Jersey. The state’s Prevention of Domestic Violence Act lists various criminal offenses that are deemed to be an act of domestic violence when committed against certain household or family members. Committing an act of domestic violence can not only result in criminal charges, but under the PDVA the victim can seek a restraining order against his or her abuser, which can require the abuser to move out of a home shared the victim, refrain from contacting the victim or other family members, or surrender firearms to the court.
