Task Force on Family Court Intake

Categories: News,

The Florida Bar Journal contains an excellent synopsis of recommendations by the FLAFCC-sponsored Task Force on Family Court Intake to create a universal model for processing cases from intake through outcome for Florida’s family courts.

FLAFCC members Robert J. Merlin, Judge Sandy Karlan, Linda Fieldstone, M.Ed., and Peggie Ward, Ph.D. co-chaired the tax force and shepherded its work through fruition.

Recommendations by the Self-Represented Parties in the Courts, Triage, Case Management, and Technology committees collectively represent a model for innovations that every circuit and county can adopt. A uniform family court intake system will improve efficiency, better serve the public, and help parties navigate the family court system more effectively. Read the article here.
