in the family law environment in the United States and Canada.

For decades, Domestic Violence (DV) or Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) has been a challenging and important issue for new and experienced family lawyers, judges, evaluators, mediators, therapists, and DV advocates.

  1. Recently licensed professionals may have little experience with DV/IPV, yet their cases involving DV/IPV will be some of the most difficult they handle.
  2. Many experienced professionals will have a local viewpoint and may want to know more about how other places handle DV/IPV cases.
  3. The coronavirus pandemic has caused a spike in domestic violence that shelters, domestic violence agencies, law enforcement, and courts are still trying to manage.
What is certain is that professionals are being called to deal with it more than before. Understanding the impact of DV/IPV on family law issues will help new and seasoned professionals better handle these emotionally charged and dangerous cases.
We created this video series that presents an overview of DV/IPV facing family law professionals. The featured experts offer concrete advice about how to screen for DV/IPV, assess the level of danger, and work towards safe and healthy resolutions for families.
