SAFeR promotes domestic violence-informed decision-making in family law matters.

SAFeR is an approach to decision making in IPV-related family law matters. It consists of four parts: (1) screening for IPV; (2) assessing the full nature and context of IPV; (3) focusing on the effects of IPV; and (4) responding to IPV in all recommendations, decisions, and interventions.

SAFeR staff provide training and technical assistance to courts, legal and dispute resolution professionals, advocates, and others on using SAFeR in their work.
