Testimony Regarding Operational Challenges in Family Court

The family court system in New York City holds immense, if sometimes overlooked, power over the lives of the New Yorkers who find themselves entangled within it. This is particularly true in the area of family regulation.

As the City Council examines operational issues in family court, it must also scrutinize the systems that lead people into court in the first instance and enact necessary reforms to reduce unnecessary entanglement with the legal system, and with it, government disruption of the most personal aspects of people’s lives.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
