As stated in the introduction of the Domestic Violence Handbook, "domestic violence should not happen to anybody. Ever. Period." The contributors to this site couldn't agree more.

This project came to our attention when Judge Edward Sosnick, a circuit court judge in Oakland County, Michigan, asked if we would help with a layout for the printed handbook. Naturally, we were happy to help.

It didn't take long to realize the importance of this frightening social problem. It was impossible to read this book and not want to help. This website is our way of contributing. Hopefully, you may never need it..... but there are lots of people who do. Please pass it on. Please join the fight to stop domestic violence.

The Domestic Violence Handbook was created through the efforts of the Oakland County Coordinating Council Against Domestic Violence. The printed version has been funded by grants from The Michigan Department of Community Health: Violence Prevention Program, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Administration for Children and Families, The Detroit Edison Foundation , The Oakland County Circuit Court, and the Target Corporation .

The Domestic Violence Handbook website development and hosting is donated by Creative Communciations Group . The promotional efforts are provided by The American Divorce Information Network , publishers of Divorce Online .
