Domestic Violence

Camden County Spousal Abuse Lawyers

One of the unfortunate aspects of divorce is that instances of domestic violence tend to increase before a divorce occurs. In some cases, children are involved in the accusations and parents are separated from their children as a result. If you are suffering from domestic abuse or have been accused of abusing a spouse or partner, it is important to protect your legal rights.

It is pivotal to have representation at your final hearing when a Domestic Violence Complaint has been filed. In addition to obtaining the right result at the Domestic Violence Hearing many collateral issues are decided. While these decisions are considered temporary they often become “the law of the case”.

At Mullen Law we have the expertise to guide you through the Domestic Violence process whether victim or defendant. We will protect your interests both economic and contractual.

A Domestic Violence Hearing should not be utilized to get an upper hand at a future divorce proceeding. If a settlement is reached at the final hearing it should benefit both parties and keep them from constant future Domestic Violence complaints.

Domestic Violence Has Serious Consequences For All Involved

When one party alleges domestic violence, he or she can obtain a restraining order that bars the alleged abuser from having contact with them, with their friends, family and even their children. In many cases, the alleged abusers are barred from their own home, leaving them without the right to see their children.

The order will stay in effect indefinitely and has other consequences, such as barring an alleged abuser from possessing firearms and keeping them from obtaining certain types of employment. Perhaps the most unfortunate aspect of domestic violence in the context of a divorce is that it can be used unscrupulously in order for one spouse to gain the upper hand.
