The New Domestic Relations Court of New York; How Does It Work?

By Charles Zunser

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, June 1938

The creation of the New Domestic Relations Court of New York in 1933 was a merger between the old Family Court and the Children's Court. This amalgamation simplified cases arising in connection with the family and allowed them to be taken care of collectively in one court. Though the merger had both strengths and weaknesses, a properly administered domestic relations court is one of the best social and legal instruments we have with which to work intelligently, sympathetically and effectively, to repair the social havoc wrought by the broken home.
