Family Violence: Legislative Update Volume 19

March 23, 2015


Family Violence: Legislative Update Volume 19 is now available! This volume focuses on the 2013 legislative sessions. Orders of protection were a dominant focus of the 2013 legislative season with many state legislatures expanding their reach and enhancing their capacity to provide safe options for victims and their families. The 2013 legislative season also saw a renewed focus on victims’ rights and a continued emphasis on domestic violence in custody cases and on victim confidentiality. Legislators, judges, attorneys, domestic violence coalitions, and others interested in state domestic and family violence legislation will find this publication useful and informative as a guide to legislative changes made to address domestic violence in legislation across the county.
