NJ does not allow work licenses. You have a right to go back into the sentencing court and ask that the sentence (in your case the license suspension period) be amended (reduced). This has to be done through what is known as a "Motion" under NJ Court Rule 7:9-4(a). It sounds like you have compelling circumstances to present a successful Motion. I suggest that you hire an experienced lawyer for the best chance at success.
Mr. Marootian is correct. New Jersey does not have the option of a Temporary license to travel back and forth from work. Your only option is to file a Motion to bring the matter before the Judge who sentenced you and present the argument that you need the suspension reduced based on the severe hardship that is being placed on your family based on your inablity to get back and forth to your job. It would also pay to consult an experienced municipal Court attorney. Please feel free to call with any questions (201)-342-5030, otherwise good luck.
