The Children & Families Section provides technical assistance, training, and policy recommendations to improve court performance in cases involving children and families.

The Advisory Committee on Children & Families makes policy recommendations to the Supreme Court of Ohio through the section. Current projects include responding to reports of child abuse, neglect and dependency; adult guardianship standards; domestic relations forms; and family law reform legislation.

Technical assistance is provided by the section through consultation with local courts and publications. The section also staffs roundtables which allow court personnel to discuss common issues and share perspectives on current practice needs. The section collaborates with other sections within the Office of Court Services to provide training on caseflow management and standards of practice.
