Wall Township Domestic Violence Offense

Domestic violence is defined as the commission of one or more criminal acts against someone protected by Prevention of Domestic Violence including, but limited to, the following:

  • Simple Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Harassment
  • Stalking

  • Terroristic Threats
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Burglary

If the “victim” can establish that he/she was the victim of one of the enumerated offenses and that they are in need of an emergency order of protection, a temporary restraining order will be entered over the telephone by the municipal court of Wall. Within approximately ten days thereafter, the defendant has the opportunity to challenge the temporary restraints at a final restraining order hearing. This the only opportunity to defeat efforts to make the restraints permanent so it is abundantly important to present your very best case at this proceeding. Failure to successfully defend the application results in the restraints becoming final and a permanent bar to any contact with the victim being imposed. An attorney who is highly skilled in defending restraining orders is the best weapon in our judgement in accomplishing this objective.

Wall New Jersey Criminal Charge for Domestic Violence

In addition to a restraining order hearing at the Monmouth County Superior Court, an individual can be exposed to a criminal charge for committing an act of domestic violence. If the violation involves a disorderly persons offense like simple assault or harassment, the charge is heard in Wall Municipal Court. Indictable crimes such as aggravated assault and terroristic threats can only be dealt with at the Superior Court in Freehold. This is where the criminal offense will be referred if the domestic violence involves a fourth degree crime, third degree crime or second degree crime. Our lawyers have extensive familiarity with the court system in both venues.
