The Legal System's Response to Children Exposed to Domestic Violence.
Lemon, Nancy K. D.
Future of Children, v9 n3 p67-83 Win 1999
Highlights four key areas of case law in which courts have begun to examine the effects of domestic violence on children: child custody and visitation; restraining orders; failure to protect a child from harm; and termination of parental rights. A survey of appellate court decisions since 1990 shows the ongoing need for mandatory judicial training on domestic violence. (Contains 93 references.) (SLD)
