Mission Statement

Based on the one family-one judge concept, the State’s Integrated Domestic Violence (IDV) Courts exist to handle related cases pertaining to a single family where the underlying issue is domestic violence. The IDV Courts seek to promote justice and protect the rights of all litigants while providing a comprehensive approach to case resolution, increasing offender accountability, promoting victim safety, integrating the delivery of social services, and eliminating inconsistent and conflicting judicial orders.

Background

The IDV Court is part of the Supreme Court. Suffolk County’s IDV Court had it’s opening day in September of 2002. Since it’s inception, it has handled thousands of cases and served a multitude of families. Training and education for judicial and non-judicial personnel is an important component of the IDV Court in order that they may stay abreast of any new legislation or updates in matters relating to domestic violence. Suffolk County’s IDV Court has held many training sessions and seminars for other courts and agencies over the years.
