Jersey City Family Law Attorney Santo Artusa filed a complaint/application to modify custody and/or parenting time. The father, who had been the custodial parent for approximately 2 years argued his case but after Judge Arre heard testimony he urged the attorneys to discuss the matter. Attorney Santo Artusa successfully negotiated joint/shared physical custody of 4 nights one week and 3 nights the alternate week.  For more information about child custody in New Jersey visit this New Jersey Child Custody Lawyer and about support, visit: New Jersey Child Support Lawyer.

Another Judge that hears many cases and is the Presiding Judge of the family division in Hudson County is Judge Maureen Mantineo. Judge Mantineo’s chambers are located where Judge Sogluizzo’s chambers were on the second floor of the Hudson County Superior Court. Judge Mantineo was the presiding judge of family years ago before taking time to work in the civil division. Her return is a welcome one as she knows how to get to the heart of the issues in the case, is polite, surprisingly patient and does not favor any particular litigant. Her courtroom is on the 2nd floor of the Superior Court. She handles divorces, child custody, child support, post divorce cases, parenting time and other family law issues.
