Accountability & Oversight: Domestic Violence, Child Abuse and Custody Cases | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Family courts have a process to resolve issues between parties. If not resolved amicably beforehand, the end of the process is a trial. However, before a matter gets to trial, there are potentially numerous decisions made by judges that impact adults and children’s lives and for which there is little or no oversight or accountability.

After a complaint is filed, motions can get filed, argued and decided. Where a trial is held, witnesses testify and a judge makes a decision. In family court, most states do not use juries, so it is a judge that hears evidence, decides what evidence to consider and what weight to give to evidence and what to rely upon. The judge then makes determinations as to custody, visitation, parental decision making and other issues that affect individual family members.
