Ending a marriage can turn life upside down in many ways, and this is especially true for some unfortunate people who have been subjected to family violence or threats of violence. In Jersey City and across the state of New Jersey, those who are going through a divorce or struggling with post-divorce matters such as child support payments or custody and visitation may experience stress, depression or even anger. Sadly, these strong emotions can be so severe that they push someone to carry out an act of violence or threaten to harm someone, and victims need to take action swiftly.
If you are a parent, it is pivotal for you to do all you can to protect your child. Moreover, you may be a non-custodial parent but you could worry about the well-being of your child because you believe that their other parent is mistreating them or you have received threats involving your child. It is extremely important to take family violence and threats seriously and identify the proper course of action. For example, abuse may have an impact on child custody.
Sadly, far too many people have been exposed to family violence over a divorce matter, some of whom have even lost their lives. Our law office knows that these challenges can be incredibly personal and difficult to deal with, but victims of family violence and those whose safety has been threatened should not wait any longer to take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their children from harm.
