My question involves a marriage in the state of: New Jersey
Hello - I am in a very bad situation and I'm not sure what to do.
Two days ago, I had an altercation with my wife, who is 7 weeks pregnant with our second child, that ended up with the police coming to our home. Long story short, I had to take away her phone because she was extremely angry at me and was about to do something serious (cancel our child's first birthday party, which in my culture is a very big deal...like a wedding reception), so I took the phone. She tried to take it back. During the struggle for the phone, she pulled my hand and my forearm hit her belly. She immediately claimed that I "punched her" and called the police.
Ultimately I was not arrested but asked to leave the house for both of us to cool off. I have not returned home.
My wife is still at home with my child and her parents. I would like to go back home and see my child, and sleep in my own bed. However, I am concerned that, at some point, she may again call the police if either we argue or just to bolster her case against me should we divorce by making something up. She says I can come home. I have asked her if I could take my child out to visit me where i'm staying but she says that she will not let our daughter out of her sight because I am a "threat". We discussed her moving to her house (we have two homes, one titled to me, one to her. We live in mine), but she says our daughter has to go with her and I could only see her in her house.
Is there a way for me to actually cohabitate with her with some sort of protection against further police action? Is there a way to get her out of my home and get the right to have my daughter outside of her presence?
