What Constitutes Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence can be defined as any crime of violence committed towards a current or
former spouse, domestic partner, or anyone else protected by state and
federal domestic violence laws. A crime of violence can include any threat,
use of physical force, destruction of property in order to intimidate,
or sexual abuse.
Under New Jersey law, one of these criminal offenses must be committed
by an adult against a:
- household member;
- person with whom the offender has a child together;
- person that the offender was dating.

Domestic violence crimes can be identified by immigration officials through
the Secure Communities Program. Under this program, Immigration and Customs
Enforcement receives the fingerprints of anyone booked into custody for
a crime. This is cross-checked with immigration databases to determine
who is illegally present in the country or eligible for removal based
on the crime committed.
