In New Jersey the police are required to arrest a suspect if the accuser—a wife, girlfriend, cohabitant, or any family or household member—shows any sign of injury, and may still arrest the accused even if there is no sign of injury. In response to an accusation of domestic violence or spousal abuse the municipal court will usually issue a restraining order against the accused.
Do not make any statements to the police or the accuser without an attorney present. Such a mistake can have consequences that affect your future and your family. Our office defends people accused of domestic violenbce and we try to ensure there is little if any long lasting consequences to your future.
