Full Faith and Credit: A Passport to Safety, A Judge's Guide

January 15, 2015


Full Faith and Credit: A Passport to Safety, A Judge's Guide (Passport to Safety) was developed in 1999 as part of the Office on Violence Against Women's comprehensive effort to assist states, tribes, and territories with implementing the full faith and credit provision of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Since the original publication of Passport to Safety, VAWA was amended three times - in 2000, in 2005, and in 2013.  In 2005, the NCJFCJ revised Passport to Safety to reflect the amendments to VAWA, which expanded it from its original issuing and enforcing court cards to include new bench cards on firearms and child custody, visitation, and support. The NCJFCJ also added a Tribal insert to reflect the 2013 amendments to VAWA.
