Newark Domestic Violence Information

Are You a Victim of Domestic Violence?

Many victims of domestic violence often do not report the abusive and violent acts of their significant other or loved one. It is crucial that all victims know there is help and they have options.

Breaking the Domestic Violence Cycle

Many victims feel trapped in their situation either economically, from fear of reprisal, or they feel they have no outside support; however, domestic violence victims may petition the courts to issue restraining orders to keep their abusers away from them or face legal ramifications including incarceration for repeat offenders. Talk to a Newark domestic violence attorney to learn how you can legally protect yourself and your children.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Domestic Violence Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
