National Research Project

"The ABA's Child Custody Pro Bono Project is a joint project of the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service and Family Law Section, and is administered by the ABA Center for Pro Bono. . . . The Project has researched child custody representation laws in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Researched issues include when attorneys are appointed, the role the attorney plays in the case, qualifications for the attorneys, and how such representation is funded. Summaries of the results are available for divorce cases and adoption, guardianship, and unmarried parent cases. In addition, the project has researched the laws of all jurisdictions regarding cases in which domestic violence issues are raised, where custody or safety of children is an issue. Summaries are available for General Domestic Violence Statutory Provisions, Domestic Violence Raised in Custody Cases, Civil Order of Protection Cases, and Domestic Violence Definitions in Statutes Other than Custody."
