Crespo v. Crespo is a decision by a trial court in New Jersey establishing that proof of domestic violence requires clear and convincing evidence by virtue of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.[1]

The court applied Mathews v. Eldridge to reject the "preponderance of the evidence" standard previously applied to allegations of domestic violence.
