Family Law Commission website

The hearing will be held Tuesday evening, January 28th in the Senate chamber of Legislative Hall in Dover. The hearing will start at 7:00 p.m., followed by public testimony, scheduled to begin just after.

Those making statements are asked to confine their remarks to five minutes or less. Written statements and supporting materials are welcome and may go into more detail than it is possible to do in the oral statements. Speakers are asked to keep their remarks general in nature.

Depending upon the number of persons wishing to testify, the commission may limit the length of time each person has to speak. Speakers are asked either to sign up at the hearing or contact the Family Law Commission in advance by calling or e-mailing FLC staff person Jennifer Parrish at 302-744-4039 or jennifer.parrish@delaware.gov.

You can speak on any matter regarding Family Court; all issues are important (i.e., open court, child support, visitation, your experience, etc.).

FLC Annual Meeting Annoucement

When our lives and the lives of our children are at stake, there is no choice but to stand up, speak up, band together and advocate for positive change. The effort may be hard, discouraging and seem almost impossible at times, however, as individuals join together against injustice, we will make a difference. We can insist on our human rights being enforced; we can insist on just and equitable treatment of ourselves as parents and our children; we can insist on accountability, integrity, and honor in our Family Court system. NEVER LET UP! Take the time as together we can move mountains.

The driving force behind Delaware Court Reform Initiative is the minimization of the negative impact Family Court has on the lives of families that must utilize the system for divorce, custody, child support and more.

Many litigants find it hard to navigate Family Court's system. Members of DCRI have experienced Family Court first hand as litigants. They know many of the issues and with the help of people just like you, are advocating with legislators and Family Court personnel for change.

The purpose of this website is to unify people who have experienced the Family Court of the State of Delaware, but to also point litigants in the direction of how to advocate in their own behalf. No one person can reform a system. It is the hope that this site will bring together a movement of the people of the State of Delaware to change Delaware Family Court for the betterment of all concerned.

Delaware Family Law Commission

While we are working to get the Delaware Court Reform Initiative website back online, here is some basic information on a State of Delaware office that you could seek information from on your general issues you are having with the Family Court system. Please note that the Family Law Commission deals with the "process" and not low level details of your case.

Let your voice be heard because even though there have been some minor positive changes in Family Court, it is now time for the difficult changes to happen. Without your voice, those who make the decisions will not believe they need to act for positive change. Please let all your email and facebook/twitter persons know about the Family Law Commission.
