The Battered Women’s Justice Project (BWJP) is pleased to announce a webinar on the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) for attorneys and legal advocates who deal with military-related survivors of intimate partner violence. The SCRA is a statute that is generally not well understood, and it may sometimes be used by abusers who are service members to try to manipulate and control court proceedings. On the other hand, it may be helpful to victims who are service members. Understanding the statute will enable attorneys and advocates to more effectively assist military-related clients. We hope you’ll join us for this informative webinar.
This webinar will discuss the challenges confronted by battered women as they consider whether to seek a custody/parenting time order from a court. In making decisions about mediation, negotiation and/or litigation of custody issues, battered women must consider the risks posed by the batterer to the children during access, any risks both to the battered woman and children at exchange, whether these risks can be mitigated by supervised exchange or visitation, and whether a 3rd party, such as a friend or family member, can safety supervise or if supervision should be done at a center. Immediately after separation, battered women may want to see a temporary custody order in a civil protection order. But it may be that the batterer is not interested in custody of the children and poses no risk to them. In this case, seeking a custody order may not be necessary or can be sought at some time after the crises and emotions of separation have somewhat abated. Battered women need to know the law, the court system, the inclination of judges, the options for supervision (and the risks of supervision center staff judging her protective parenting negatively), the likelihood that a judge will respond swiftly to a batterer’s violation of a custody order, the kinds of behavior that constitute “a change of circumstances” that may be the basis for a modification of a custody order, and the portability of a custody order within the state and across state lines – among other things.

At its best, the process of community assessment is both an effective community organizing tool and also a process for creating concrete change. Many interagency teams are eager to analyze practices and case files together, but some communities are challenged when it comes to committing to change and implementing those changes. Preparing for implementation from the beginning stages of a community assessment can pave the way for success in implementing changes the assessment recommends. Join us for an insightful discussion to learn about key strategies for successful implementation of recommendations and findings.
