The Artusa Law Firm represents individuals from Hoboken in divorce and family law cases in Hudson County-NJ. Our Hoboken office address is: 50 Harrison Street, #490, Hoboken, NJ 07030. While we represent people throughout New Jersey, most of our cases are decided in Hudson, Bergen and Essex County, NJ. In Hoboken, the difference in those cases is that the age of the parties is usually much younger than other parts of New Jersey and with that comes different issues. Many people in Hoboken are just starting out in their careers or have just started families and handling a divorce like that which deals with more forward looking issues than a couple married 30 years looking back and dividing more assets. Our team is skilled in the forward thinking approach and planning as we are young as well, with young families and we have been to family court ourselves (earlier in life). We know what to look out for, what to prevent, what to seek and how to be compassionate to our clients. Going through a divorce can be very difficult on a person and while lawyers are not social workers, we do have to help clients deal with the non-legal issues that come with a divorce whether it is in Hoboken, Jersey City, Hackensack or anywhere else for that matter.
Aside from divorce, there may be other issues that need to be addressed during your case or before. For instance, if domestic abuse is an issue, you may want to obtain a restraining order to protect yourself before you file for divorce or you may seek a restraining order after you file for divorce. If you have children, you will want to address child custody and the legal rights of each parent. You will want to address child support and if the case fits, you may want to address alimony and how to obtain that.
HOW LONG WILL A DIVORCE TAKE IN NJ?
A divorce in Hudson County can take 60 days or can take over a year depending on which issues need to be resolved by the court or by the parties. Throughout the time your case is filed and work is being done, attorneys and the parties should be trying to resolve any issues they can so that people can move forward with their lives. When the divorce judgment is granted, a new life can begin and some peace of mind can come to you.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A LEGAL SEPARATION IN NJ?
Divorce from bed and board still keeps you married but all financial issues are decided and neither party can remarry until it is converted (if ever) to a divorce. That is the NJ version of a legal separation.

IF I WANT TO CHANGE A COURT ORDER IN FAMILY COURT, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Family court orders in NJ can be changed in certain circumstances when a significant change of circumstances occurs. If a change occurs, you need to file a motion in family court for the relief you are seeking. If you have received family court papers, you only have a limited time to respond in writing or risk default against you. If you have been served with divorce papers or received NJ family court motion papers in the mail, contact a family law attorney immediately.

WHAT MAKES YOUR FIRM DIFFERENT THAN THE REST?
I, Santo Artusa, Jr was once a family court litigant in Manhattan. I was a recent college graduate trying to find my way and the relationship I had did not work out and my daughter was born while our relationship got worse and worse. The battles in family court ensued and I was trying to figure out what to do, who to trust, when will it all be over and so forth. As time went on and the wounds healed, I went to law school at night while working in Manhattan. I cannot speak for other lawyers or firms but most of us in my firm have been through the family law courts and because of this, we treat our clients differently, we explain the process to them every step of the way because without that, some clients will not ask questions, they will not say things that I wish I knew which only helps their case. Lastly, I live and work in the Hoboken/Jersey City area. I see the people I represent in the stores I go to, the restaurants, the parks with my kids, I am a member of this community. If you have a family law case or divorce case in Hoboken, Jersey City in Hudson County, contact my team today on 201-706-7910.
