When incidents of domestic violence occur in the families of our clients, our goal is to take immediate action to do what is best for their family, whether that means obtaining a final restraining order or preventing one from being entered.
In many domestic violence cases, there is an underlying criminal act as well. Whether it be assault, terroristic threats, trespass, stalking or harassment, we can help your family deal with the separate criminal charges that ensue as well. As a firm, we have over thirty years of experience handling both family law and criminal defense cases, so we understand the varied legal concerns that affect your family after an incident or allegation of domestic violence.
If a temporary restraining order has been filed, a judge will schedule a hearing in order to determine whether or not the incident in question was, in fact, domestic violence. If domestic violence is not proved, the temporary restraining order will be dismissed. A hearing may be necessary in which both parties have the right to be represented by counsel in order to prove whether the act complained of meets the legal definition of domestic violence. If domestic violence is found to have occurred, the offending party will be removed from the marital home. The stakes are high in any such case on both sides and it is necessary to be represented by an experienced domestic violence trial lawyer. Since these cases take on both family law and criminal aspects, Mr. Goldblatt who was a former municipal court prosecutor is uniquely situated to use this experience as well as his thirty years of divorce experience to meet the needs of his clients. Mr. Goldblatt has the knowledge and experience in order to successfully prosecute a domestic violence complaint or defend such a complaint.
