The Judges in Hudson County Family Court have broad discretion in deciding how to resolve your case. In family law, there are no smoking guns and the Judge’s impression of you are very important. Always be respectful of everyone in the courthouse, especially in the courtroom. Be on time, dress appropriately, and never cut-off a Judge or other party while they are speaking.
