Still Caught up in DV/Custody Drama? For 2016, What about Catching up on OVW Discretionary Grants (2013) and these SIX, ah, “Groups”?
**Word choices here in definitions can hardly be considered “accidental.” So “such as domestic assault” clearly does not mention “…and battery” (assault it the rush to attack, whether or not impact is made; battery requires actual contact, and may produce serious injury) — not to mention “or child abuse” was omitted, although it remains a serious issue.It should go without saying that if ONE judge controls both custody and criminal matters, the conflicts of interest could be rampant, as the family courts involve such a tendency to order services for adults (and children), to private professionals or other nonprofits, as part of the family court model. The criminal code (i.e., the penal code) sets apart from the family code, which differs, by design and intention. Blending them seems like it’s the standards of the criminal code most likely to be compromised — family courts themselves already ARE such a compromise with the penal code when it comes to abuse.
