East Brunswick Raves About Mr. Goldblatt
"I had a very positive outcome while using this Law office. My calls were always returned in a timely fashion and I was kept abreast of what I needed to know. They answered my questions and made me feel as a valued client during the entire process. They were always friendly and professional. Because an agreement could not be reached by both parties it ran longer than it should have but in the end justice and vindication prevailed." John Valencia
Consequences of Domestic Violence Charges
The severity of your criminal charges will determine the amount of jail time and fines you are facing. If convicted of felony domestic violence charges, your potential prison time and fines will dramatically increase. Mr. Goldblatt may be able to get felony domestic violence charges reduced to misdemeanors, if not dismissed altogether.
Federal law restricts anyone convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence from owning firearms. You will have to give up your firearms if you are arrested for domestic violence in New Jersey. Even prosecutions that are deemed unwarranted will result in a temporary loss of firearm rights.
If you are convicted in your domestic violence case, a judge can restrict your time or even completely prohibit you from seeing your children. For victims, having restrictions against the accused can give you peace that your children won't be alone with a potential abuser.
A protection order can greatly restrict your freedoms, preventing you from entering your own home or contacting your children. Violating a protection order will result in more consequences. A protection order can also keep you safe from a spouse or partner who is physically threatening.
If you're convicted of felony charges, you will lose your right to vote. A domestic violence conviction on your criminal record can make future employment opportunities difficult to secure. Your reputation after being convicted of abuse will also be significantly damaged.
