Supported by the State Justice Institute, Automating Family Justice Triage is working with national experts to develop a process and prototype that can be implemented in courts across the country.

Triage Toolbox

"Aggressively triage cases at the earliest opportunity." - CCJ/COSCA Resolution 4 (2020)

Pathways approaches have been applied in civil and family cases with demonstrated effectiveness. The Cady Initiative for Family
Justice Reform recommends that courts “aggressively triage cases at the earliest opportunity” to determine which “pathway” is most likely to provide the services and case management that a family needs to resolve their case. This approach has been endorsed by the Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators, the highest authorities in state court leadership.
