This is part of the Family Code section 3044 Custody and Visitation Toolkit. This is a template letter that an advocate who is working with a survivor can give to Family Court Services. The letter explains Family Code section 3044 and that courts cannot awards sole custody to a survivor but then order 50/50 custody without requiring the abusive parent to prove that they have met certain requirements.
