Because custody cases involving abuse have intermingled issues of safety and access, judges require effective and accessible information and tools to aid their decision-making. The Judicial Guide contains 14 bench cards, which provide an easy-to-use checklist system for judges at critical decision-making points throughout the case, as well as a supplemental guide, which provides additional information about in- and out-of-court behaviors, best interest of the child, and order issuance and enforcement.
