St. Louis County Domestic Violence Court

The St. Louis County Domestic Violence Court was created to increase safety for victims and their children, increase accountability for offenders and establish a coordinated community response to domestic violence from the justice system and partner agencies.


Domestic violence cases are assigned to a limited number of Family Court divisions. Judges in these divisions serve in the DV Court because of their interest in and understanding of domestic violence issues.
