What others have said about Hon. Peter A. Bogaard



Comment #: NJ2931
Took forever to rule. Clerk told me decision would be based on paper with no court appearance. Four months later, they held a court appearance and never alerted me. I appealed with proof that they never contacted me. Five months later, refused to reconsider and denied everything. Double dipped child support reduction. Included other rulings in defendant's favor that weren't even in the original order.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2603
made a ruling without the proper documents to factually back it up. The motion was to decrease child support, motion was granted based on the payers word, child support lowered to $40 per week for 2 teenagers, with $32k in arrears. When asked to have the facts recorded, the response was "I already ruled and have another case to hear"


Comment #: NJ2548
Did give an order for several months after appearance. Refused to enforce his own orders. Allows litigants to do as they please and violate orders, because he won't do anything about it.
