The Tulsa County Domestic Violence (DV) Court is an accountability court dedicated to improving the Court’s response to domestic violence and sexual
assault. The Court is a criminal domestic violence court with both misdemeanor and felony dockets focusing on intimate partner violence (IPV) in cases
of domestic violence, violation of protective orders, and stalking. The Court works to coordinate with Protective Order and Family Court to increase
victim safety and offender compliance. It also collaborates with the local state-court justice system and the local community to effectively respond to
domestic violence and sexual assault, hold offenders accountable, and enhance victim safety.
|Unique Features of DV Court
• Expedited Resolution – The DV Court aims to move cases quickly towards resolution enabling individuals to complete most, if not all, district
court actions involving their intimate partners.
• Judicial Review Hearings – Hearings that will occur after an offender’s sentencing and typically continue during any probation/supervisory
period. Offender compliance with court orders is closely monitored so that the court is quickly advised of any non-compliance.
• Case Coordination – In order to reduce the risk of conflicting court orders, DV Court staff track any co-existing cases involving DV Court
litigants and inform all judges to which they are assigned about the status and resolution of those cases.
• High-Risk, High-Lethality Docket – Launching in 2021, high-risk DV offenders (those cases involving strangulation, firearms, assaults on
pregnant women, or threats to kill) will be on their own compliance docket, have dedicated probation/supervision officers, and attend batterer
intervention programming with only other high-risk offenders.
• All misdemeanor cases filed that include domestic violence, violation of protective orders, and stalking are automatically assigned to the
Misdemeanor Domestic Violence (MDV) docket.
• Felony cases are screened weekly to identify cases eligible for the Felony Domestic Violence (FDV) docket based on the FDV Administrative
• The DV Court tracks all MDV & FDV data including, but not limited to, the date of offense, filing, disposition, reviews, and revocation.
