Domestic Violence Criminal Charges & Penalties

In New Jersey, there are two ways the legal system deals with domestic violence allegations. First, you can be charged with crime of violence and prosecuted at the municipal court for disorderly persons offense or if it is an indictable offense, the County Prosecutor’s Office will handle it in Superior Court, Criminal Division. Secondly, the “victim” or person accusing you of the domestic violence may seek a permanent restraining order against you in the Superior Court, Family Division. A restraining order is a civil action that once put in place is permanent, and is enforced with further criminal charges if it is broken. Therefore, if you are convicted of a domestic assault charge or a restraining order violation, you could go to jail, and you may be permanently banned from owning or possessing firearms
