Protecting And Preserving What Matters Most: Family

Protecting Yourself And Your Family From Domestic Violence

When someone in your life becomes a threat to you or your children, legal action may be the only method of protecting everyone from shame. A restraining order can help offer this protection, but getting one is not always as easy as it should be. Whether you are trying to earn a restraining order in your divorce or not, you need a lawyer you can depend on to help you earn the order you and your family need.

I am New Jersey attorney Gary Natale, and I have more than 30 years of experience helping clients pursue the ideal outcome in their family law needs. I know how urgently my clients need a restraining order in these cases, and I do everything in my power to help them secure one with as little time or complication as possible.

How I Protect My Clients

Domestic violence is something that no one should ever have to experience, and my goal as your legal representation is to make it clear that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and will result in legal consequences. My method of representation is a winning advantage for many of my clients.

I use my extensive legal and trial experience to fully prepare for these cases so I can prove the incident in question took place, and there is a reasonable fear that it could happen again. I work tirelessly to get the facts, including prior events and any supporting evidence of them. I do not take chances in family law cases, which is why I make it my mission to be fluent in the related laws.

How Domestic Violence Can Influence A Divorce

When a spouse is able to accuse the other of domestic assault successfully, it can have a considerable impact on a divorce. A restraining order prevents any contact between the related parties, which eliminates any opportunity for settlement negotiations or other conversations involving custody or other divorce matters.

Additionally, a restraining order against a parent can also limit the custody and visitation rights they earn in a divorce. If there is a legitimate threat of harm toward the children, it is likely the parent will not have anything more than supervised visitation with their children.
