January 06, 2018 - CTAS Funding and Domestic Violence Courts for Special Domestic Violence Criminal Jurisdiction
The Tribal Law and Policy Institute, National Congress American Indians, and National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges hosted a webinar for tribes considering exercising the Special Domestic Violence Criminal Jurisdiction under VAWA 2013. One way to meet the equal protection requirements under VAWA 2013 is to establish a Domestic Violence Court/Docket. Under the Fiscal Year 2015 CTAS RFP purpose area #5 tribes (who did not have a CTAS grant from OVW when they applied) could apply for funding to support a Domestic Violence Court/Docket.

December 15, 2017 - Tribal Domestic Violence Courts and Dockets: Foundational Elements of Domestic Violence
Tribal domestic violence courts are specialized courts with targeted caseloads consisting of domestic violence cases. Tribal domestic violence courts are comprised of personnel who are well trained in the dynamics of domestic violence and committed to working collaboratively among various victim service providers/systems to meet the needs of the family. Additionally, these courts focus on victim safety and batterer accountability by closely monitoring batterer compliance with court orders. Tribal domestic violence docket days are characterized by setting aside specific days of the tribal court's docket to address cases involving domestic violence. Devoting certain days of the docket to domestic violence cases may allow continuity for the victim, and allows the tribal court to address related civil and criminal matters on the same day. It also allows the court to offer enhanced security, advocacy services, and child care for domestic violence victims.
