Features of a Full Service Family Court

Publication year: 2001  |  Cataloged on: Jul 19, 2011

This article, which appears in the Fall 2001 issue of Ohio Family Court Bulletin, offers a discussion of the features of a full service family court and highlights various initiatives undertaken by four pilot initiatives in Ohio that, according to the authors, approach a range of practice that should be present in family courts. These pilot initiatives, which are located in Clermont, Lorain, Fayette and Mercer counties, were funded in 1999 by the Supreme Court of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Each of these four pilot initiatives holds out the promise to know families, treat them with care and respect, and to address the issues that brought them to court. The pilot courts fulfill these promises by offering such initiatives as new case screening, mediation, revision of case flow management procedures and an expansion of the level of services available to assist families in resolving the issues that resulted in court involvement.
