Abuse and Neglect Hearings Benchbook
The Abuse and Neglect Hearings Benchbook is an electronic resource guide designed
primarily for family court judges, but it can also be used by other family court practitioners
to assist with clarifying legal requirements and expectations of all parties. It provides
general information on state and federal law, court proceedings, court order requirements,
and "Best Legal Practices."
The Benchbook is intended to be as user-friendly and easy to navigate as possible. It is divided into 11 sections which contain information in a condensed form for readability that can be expanded for a more detailed explanation.
