Lessons Learned: Developing Protection Order Portals

Webinar Description: This webinar will review key considerations identified through NCSC’s critical conversations with court stakeholders across the country related to portals and e-filing systems for domestic violence cases, such as addressing safety and confidentiality/privacy concerns, challenges to accessibility, support strategies to help petitioners navigate technology and court processes and collaborations necessary to build a robust framework.

  • Explain the benefits and challenges, especially for users, of e-filing systems for domestic violence protection orders
  • Identify the specific obstacles and strategies to overcome them, regarding user safety, confidentiality/privacy and accessibility of e-filing systems
  • Describe the challenges petitioners face in navigating the e-filing process and how to address them by providing necessary support through access to advocates and other strategies
  • Effectively collaborate with key stakeholders to develop, implement and assess the effectiveness of e-filing systems
