Reasonable Efforts in Child Abuse and Neglect Cases that Involve Domestic Violence
(NCJ 251127) 2014
Grant, 20 page(s)
National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges
The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges sought to determine how courts are actually handling cases involving child maltreatment and domestic violence. To better understand court practice, the research team at the NCJFCJ conducted a standardized case file review of three judicial districts in Oregon, Nevada, and West Virginia. The research data and community action plans, taken together, provide a framework for how courts are currently handling dependency cases involving domestic violence.
