What Is Domestic Violence?

New Jersey's Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1981 names 14 different acts that are considered domestic violence. While most people know that assault and homicide are considered domestic abuse, the act names several others that may be less well-known, including:

  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Burglary
  • Terroristic threats
  • Sexual assault
  • Kidnapping

To be considered domestic violence, the individuals involved must be in or have been in some type of relationship, including marriage, living together, dating or having a child together.
