A: Impossible to answer question posed without more information. My suggestion is that you schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney to discuss the complaint and the allegations so that you are better educated / prepared and better able to address the claims constructively.

A: That depends on the type of abuse alleged. Set up a consultation with a good criminal lawyer. The consultations may cost a few bucks but getting the information you need may be worth it.

A: The Clerk cannot expect you to know the statute, talk to a police officer or have one call the Garfield Municipal Court Judge and if it is appropriate ask for the issuance of a TRO, commonly known as a Temporary Domestic Violence Act restraining order. You are going to need a matrimonial attorney if this matter is in Family Court and if it goes to any criminal court, the Prosecutor will represent you. However, if anyone brings charges against you that start with "2C" then you need a criminal defense attorney. Good luck.
