This webinar is hosted by the National Center on Protection Orders & Full Faith and Credit and is open to the public. 


Battered parents frequently struggle to secure statutorily permitted child-related relief in civil protection orders. This webinar will introduce one strategy that advocates, attorneys, and survivors can use to close the gap between what the law allows by way of temporary custody in civil protection order cases and what petitioners are able to achieve. The strategy is known as "SAFeR."  It is a practical approach to screening, assessing, and responding to the lived experience of intimate partner abuse in child custody disputes.


Gabrielle Davis, Legal & Policy Advisor, Battered Women's Justice Project. Hosted by Monica Player, National Center on Protection Orders & Full Faith and Credit
