Civil Court Responses to Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse Paperback / softback
Edited by Ruth E. Fleury-Steiner, Susan L. Miller, M. Kristen Hefner
Civil Court Responses to Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse fills a void in existing literature by shifting the conversation about intimate partner violence and abuse away from research that emphasizes criminal system responses and focusing instead on civil court responses.
The volume highlights innovative theory and research about civil legal systems, helping readers better understand the interactions between people-survivors, offenders, children, and legal professionals-and these systems. Featuring interdisciplinary scholarship written exclusively for this volume, the text provides readers with a focused exploration of civil protection order systems, family court systems, state child protection systems, immigration systems, and more.
It includes attention to the ways in which inequality based on race, ethnicity, immigration status, and socioeconomic status affects survivors and their interactions with the civil legal system.
The book is an invaluable resource for courses in intimate partner or family violence, as well as for professionals who work with victims. Civil Court Responses to Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse is part of the Cognella Series on Family and Gender-Based Violence, an interdisciplinary collection of textbooks featuring cross-cultural perspectives, cutting-edge strategies and interventions, and timely research on family and gender-based violence.
