What types of things might lead to abuse charges?

If you or someone you know has been accused of domestic violence in New Jersey, you might at first be surprised especially if there was no physical contact, violence or harm involved. Your surprise is not unusual and it is important to learn that there are multiple forms of domestic abuse.

As explained by the United States Department of Justice, you might find yourself facing allegations of domestic abuse for allegedly exerting financial control over your spouse or partner. This might involve somehow preventing them from working or attending school. Similarly, any action which might indicate you attempted to keep your partner from seeing their friends or families and remain may contribute to allegations of psychological abuse.

While it may not seem uncommon to throw out an unpleasant term or name in the heat of an arguement with a significant other, you should beware as this may also be connected to accusations of emotional abuse. If you are said to have somehow prevented your spouse or partner from receiving health care, you might be in jeopardy of a domestic violence allegation. Despite common beliefs that domestic violence always includes a man hitting a woman, these types of charges can be made against men or women. People in heterosexual and same-sex relationships may be involved in cases of suspected domestic violence.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give New Jersey residents an overview of the types of things that might be involved in allegations of domestic violence.
