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:

  • spouse;
  • household member;
  • person with whom the offender has a child together;
  • person that the offender was dating.

Knowledgeable & Tenacious Immigration Defense

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.

Don't let an accusation of domestic violence jeopardize your stay in the U.S. Instead, let a New Jersey immigration lawyer from my firm take on your charges and work towards the best resolution possible
