  3. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for families with a friend of the court case. We often meet with both parents. However, there are times bringing both parents together may not be appropriate. Your answers to the following questions will help us determine whether both parents can meet together in a safe environment. The information you provide can only be viewed by judges, referees, and friend of the court staff. It cannot be viewed by the other parent or his or her attorney, and it cannot be used in any court proceedings. Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability.
  4. 1. Do you feel safe around the other parent?*
  5. 2. Is there currently or has there ever been a personal protection order or a no contact order limiting contact between you and the other parent?*
