New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney Discusses Living with Someone Who Has a Violent History

shutterstock_145404022-300x199.jpgAs an experienced New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney, when someone tells me they are living with someone with a violent history, I'm concerned about domestic violence, I'm concerned about abuse, and it's a sensitive area. In the divorce world, however, there is no correlation, no relation, no reason why a judge says you're a victim of domestic violence; therefore, you're going to get more in alimony. You may make an action in tort and look for civil remedy and try to get money, but as far as the statue for alimony, you're not using one of the factors and saying, "Well, I suffered at the hands of this and therefore I should get..." because it's a no-fault state.

The first thing I would say to someone who says I'm living with someone who's either abusive, is try to get that person protection. Maybe the person has to go file a temporary restraining order, an application for a temporary restraining order, and they have to have certain grounds in order to do that. As far as the divorce process goes, you don't want to look at the process at a point when there's abuse; you have to stop the abuse. You have to separate the abuser from the individual who is being abused and then go back to the divorce process.

Are you being abused by your partner? If so, contact the experienced New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney Christopher Leon Garibian.
