The Taskforce on Best Practices for Lawyers Representing Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Trafficking is currently conducting a survey on protective order policies in jurisdictions around the State of Texas.
The Taskforce, sponsored by the State Bar of Texas Legal Services Support Division, will issue a report in early 2013 on the practices and policies affecting survivors of violence.
Since you are familiar with the protective order practice in Texas, we need your input.
The information you provide will help us understand how protective order practice can be improved to better serve survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and their children.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Survey responses will remain anonymous unless you choose to provide your contact information. In no case will identifying information be published in the final report.
To ensure that your responses are incorporated into the report, the deadline for completing this survey is December 15, 2012.
If you, or your agency, provide services for multiple counties, please consider completing a survey for each individual county you serve.
Thank you for your time!
