In order to get emergent relief from the Family Part of the Superior Court of New Jersey it must be a true emergency. It is sometimes difficult to explain to clients that what they may perceive as an emergency the Court will not view the same way. An emergent application gets your matter heard in a matter of days sometimes hours as compared to a standard application or motion track that normally takes over a month.
The Warren Law Group can help you file an Order to Show Cause which is typically heard immediately.
Examples of matters that a New Jersey Judge would find emergent include:
- actual danger to the children;
- kidnapping of a child;
- abuse of a child;
- housing issues;
- arrest of a custodial parent;
- and other issues.
Most minor financial and custody issues will not qualify as emergencies.
Please feel free to contact Bruce K. Warren or Alyssa Warren at the Warren Law Group for a free consultation to determine if your matter is an emergency. 856-494-6930.
