In 2018, a new law went into effect that allows a minor or minor’s legal guardian to ask that certain information regarding a minor (e.g. name, address, description of abuse related to minor) be made confidential in a domestic violence or civil harassment restraining order proceeding. In this webinar, staff from the Judicial Council will go over the new forms and court processes for these requests, including a draft information sheet that is currently out for public comment. Staff from the Family Violence Appellate Project will present on a pending bill (Assembly Bill 925) that, if passed, would make some modifications to the existing law.
