The Family Violence Intervention Program (FVIP) is a court diversion program (Administrative Order 7.009) for first time juvenile offenders who have been charged with domestic battery/assault. It was developed as a diversion program to focus on the unique problems of each family whose child has committed domestic violence.
FVIP makes contact with eligible juveniles and their families during detention hearings, or the juvenile's first appearance, and informs the child and family of the terms of the FVIP program. Participation is voluntary. Parents or guardians must be willing to adhere to FVIP's requirements.
