Who has Jurisdiction over these types of Charges:

Domestic Violence charges may be heard in several different courtrooms.  Typically, the underline criminal charges associated with any domestic violence offense will be heard in either the Bergen County Superior Court, Criminal Division or in the local municipal court in the municipality where the incident occurred.  Further, usually associated with any domestic violence charge is a restraining order, these matters will be held in the Bergen County Superior Court, Family Division.  Unlike the underline criminal offense, restraining orders are civil in nature. Therefore, the evidentiary standard for any final restraining order hearing would be by a preponderance of the evidence standard instead of the traditional beyond a reasonable doubt criminal standard.  The Law Offices of Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver has extensive experience handling both types of matters.
