Thank you for participating in the Family Law Domestic Violence Screening. This screening tool is intended to provide Family Law legal professionals information about domestic violence risk levels in family law matters.
Information about domestic violence risk levels is helpful in supporting both the parties and the mediator/arbitrator in ensuring that attentiveness to potential power imbalances during mediation/arbitration can be addressed. This assessment is not designed to be used as evidence of the existence of, or absence of domestic violence, and details of a person’s answers to this questionnaire will not be released to anyone.
Upon payment confirmation, the Family Law Domestic Violence Screening Tool will be available to complete. Following the completion of the tool, a member of the Sagesse clinical team will review all responses and a follow-up phone call and/or completion letter will be received by the applicant within 7 business days. Screening cannot be completed until both parties fill out the screening tool. In many cases, parties will only be required to complete the first, very brief questionnaire while in other cases the process will be much lengthier. The cost for all assessments is the same regardless of the depth of assessment required.
NOTE: Screening results will NOT be shared with your family law professional unless you have formally given ByDesign permission to do so.
