Marital Torts & Tevis Claims

The Family Court also has jurisdiction over cases in which one spouse accuses the other of intentional torts, such as physical or psychological abuse. Often these allegations arise in a divorce case because they are used to establish one of the required grounds for divorce. Apart from the divorce, however, victims in martial torts are entitled to receive an award of damages for their pain and suffering, related medical expenses, and even punitive damages in cases of egregious conduct.

Martial torts, also known as Tevis claims, are a separate lawsuit within the divorce case and, depending upon the circumstances may be decided by a jury instead of a judge. Whether you are a spouse who has been injured or one who has been falsely accused of wrongful conduct, at Ehrlich, Petriello, Gudin & Plaza, Attorneys at Law, our family law litigators have the experience to protect you in the courtroom.
