The project in Delaware is statewide, encompassing all three counties. Delaware has a unified family court with a total of 17 judges and 16 commissioners. The project scope includes both custody/visitation cases and child-related relief in protection from abuse orders. Intense data collection efforts, including courthouse walkthroughs, a case file review, and focus groups, was followed by a comprehensive report and several recommendations. Following a facilitated discussion of the report, several of the recommendations are being implemented, including trainings, revisions to the protection order process, and revisions to the mediation process.
