Welcome to 1st District Domestic Violence Court

Idaho Domestic Violence Courts seek to improve the civil and criminal justice systems response to domestic violence by enhancing victim safety and offender accountability, and providing
effective case management and coordination of information when families are involved in multiple cases. Idaho Domestic Violence Court Policies and Guidelines were developed to articulate research-based best practices and identify essential elements for Domestic Violence Courts.

This project was supported by Grant # 2015-FJ-AX-0007 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
