Supporting the Nation's Judicial System & the Public it Serves


NCJFCJ Launches National Resource Center for Military Families and the Courts

The NCJFCJ’s National Resource Center on Military-Connected Families and the Courts is designed to be a resource for judicial officers and others working in courts with military-connected families in cases involving family violence, protection orders, divorce, child custody, child support, child abuse and neglect, and juvenile delinquency.

The NCJFCJ received funding for a grant from the State Justice Institute (SJI) to address issues for Military-Connected Families and the Courts through December 2019, and is expecting support and involvement from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office on Military Community and Family Policy.

The primary focus for the resource center is on active duty military members and their families with cases in the juvenile and family court system.  The state courts can also find a variety of points of services and information including:

  1. Register for upcoming trainings featuring military families
    View a list of upcoming NCJFCJ trainings featuring military families and many other topics.
  2. Request technical assistance
    Get answers to the question you have about how the courts are dealing with military families. If you would like to submit a technical assistance request, please email
  3. Browse publications
    The NCJFCJ has an extensive library of mental health-related and veteran treatment court publications, guides, and summaries.

Resources regarding military veterans, National Guard, and Reserve members are not the focus of the center at this time, but may be included in the future.  Click here to visit the Resource Center.
