Filing an Emergent Order To Show Cause Hudson County Family Court NJ By Santo Artusa on August 09, 2020

To file an emergent order to show cause/emergency application in Hudson County Family Court you can file via JEDS and  To file an emergent application you must be persistent and try hard to get your case heard by a Judge in the Hudson County Family Court by way of virtual court or even at the courthouse when it opens. To file in Essex County after you file in JEDS if you can, you then send to: Again you must push to get heard or have a skilled family law attorney handle it for you.

When family law issues in New Jersey cannot wait for a motion cycle or based on promises, you have the option to file an order to show cause/emergent application in the New Jersey Family Court for issues that need to be addressed immediately. The list of reasons for immediate emergent motions is not black and white, it really depends on the facts. Did a parent take a child or move a child out of state without your consent? Did a parent refuse to return your child after parenting time? Did a parent indicate they are leaving the country with your child? Is your child being abused? Is our spouse burning through all of your joint or sole accounts during or before a divorce? Is your spouse taking your child to a doctor you do not agree with? Taking medicine you do not agree with? These are just a few reasons to possibly bring an emergent order to show cause in family court in New Jersey.  We are experienced in bringing emergency applications in New Jersey Family Court in Hudson County, Essex County, Bergen County and beyond.

You can still file a motion or emergent application with the COVID shutdown. We file our applications online and are heard virtually by way of video or phone. We can file an emergent applicatiion in the morning and be heard by 430pm. And if we are heard, it does not mean we will get everything we ask for but it will speed up the process and put the otherside on notice to stop, cooperate, etc.

I can go on and on about why emergent applications are needed in family court at times. However, in your heart you know when someonthing needs immediate attention instead of 24-36 days to hear a motion. If you feel this way and want an experienced attorney, contact us on 973-337-9643.
