Defending Domestic Violence Charges | Assault
When domestic violence charges are more serious, the charges are often be upgraded to an assault charge. In these cases, we’re talking about an arrest that would probably lead to a high bail and a serious first, second, third, or fourth degree crime, versus a simple assault, which is more of a disorderly person’s offense.
Other reasons you could be charged with upgraded domestic violence charges in New Jersey could be that the person is attempting to menace another person or put them in fear of serious injury. That is another part of the statute, the threats, and that can also lead to a separate charge of harassment, which very often goes along with an assault charge. Most of the cases that wind up in municipal court are the simple assault cases between couples where there’s not a serious injury. There might be some injury but ordinarily, no one involved requires medical treatment.

Defending Domestic Violence Charges | Modifying Bail and Release Conditions
Essentially, you’re modifying the conditions of the bail or modifying the conditions of release. Now some judges won’t modify it, especially if it’s too quick, but some judges will at least hear you to see why is it that you’re trying to lift the no contact order. There might be young children in the household who the husband and the wife coordinate dropping off and picking up from school with different work hours. The judge will at least listen to the proposed modification.
