E-filing Domestic Violence Protection Orders—Safety, Accessibility, and Effectiveness

This webinar will review key considerations identified through NCSC’s critical conversations with court stakeholders across the country related to portals and e-filing systems for domestic violence cases, such as addressing safety and confidentiality/privacy concerns, challenges to accessibility, support strategies to help petitioners navigate technology, and court processes and collaborations necessary to build a robust framework.
