WFNJ recognizes that family/domestic violence victims may have special needs. If you are a victim of family/domestic violence, rape or incest, some WFNJ requirements may not apply to you. They include:
Child support cooperation requirements may not apply when the welfare agency determines there is a good reason for not cooperating.
Family/domestic violence victims will also be referred to available supportive services, as appropriate.
