The Family Court Advisory Committee was established in 1999 to advise the Chief Justice and Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts regarding Family Court issues. The Advisory Committee makes recommendations about practice guidelines, legislative action, budget expansion and statutory changes. It regularly reviews relationships between Family Courts and related court programs. The Committee provides oversight for the training curriculum, advises the AOC on technology issues and helps ensure statewide accountability. Twenty-one advisory committee members are appointed by the Chief Justice to serve for three year terms. Each appointee brings valuable knowledge from a variety of disciplines. The Committee meets quarterly.
