Veterans & Family Court: The Family Law Veteran’s Diversion Program
Published by: Honorable Lon Hurwitz and Kathleen West, DrPH
This webinar will examine the Family Law Veterans’ Diversion Program, Orange County (CA) Superior Court. Begun in 2010, this program is designed to address the unique needs of military veterans and their families when involved in family court proceedings. It provides assessments/treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury TBI issues; addresses protection for intimate partners and children during the treatment process, and; assists veterans in avoiding statutory ramifications of a domestic violence finding.
