The Family Court Accountability Coalition engages in judicial, legislative and executive branch advocacy on behalf of socioeconomically disadvantaged family court stakeholders. To facilitate our advocacy objectives, FCAC collects, compiles and disseminates court data, including statistics, studies and reports.

Like a library, we may also guide members of the public to appropriate legal materials so they can conduct their own legal research. FCAC and our staff take great care to avoid the unauthorized practice of law. The staff of FCAC will not give legal opinions or advice, nor will they comment upon or explain the meaning of legal materials. We also do not fill out legal forms or advise on how to fill out a legal form. 

If you are unable or unwilling to conduct your own legal research, on our About Page we provide suggestions for getting legal help.
