The DV LEAP focus on custody and abuse is our response to a well-documented trend in the family courts: giving unsafe parents access to their children. DV LEAP litigates cutting-edge cases in D.C. and across the U.S. on issues such as custody and abuse, child sexual abuse and domestic violence, “parental alienation,” and malicious prosecution claims wrongfully brought against protective mothers. This program includes consultations, custody trainings and presentations, custody law reform, and advocacy for embattled professionals.
