The Queens Integrated Domestic Violence Court, also known as QIDV, is one of New York’s problem-solving courts. QIDV handles related civil, criminal, and matrimonial matters with one judge presiding over multiple types of cases. Civil and criminal matters that involve the same people are handled together in the same courtroom. Litigants and defendants need only appear in one courtroom and the number of appearances the parties have to make is reduced. QLA clients have one lawyer who handles all related matters.
The attorneys in QIDV work closely with QLA social workers and investigators to ensure that clients have access to needed or required services. This holistic approach provides QLA clients with outstanding representation.
