Custody is a major consideration for any parents who choose to go through divorce. And physical custody involves the decision of where a child should live and which parent should be responsible for their day-to-day needs once their parents' marriage has ended. In New Jersey, there are a number of considerations that courts undertake before they make decisions about the physical custody of children.
Domestic violence affects many victims throughout New Jersey. While some victims may carry the tell-tale signs of abuse on their bodies, others may suffer emotional and psychological harm from their tormentors and may appear perfectly fine to those around them. Both men and women can be victims of domestic violence, and both men and women can be perpetrators of harm on members of their families and households.
