The family courts in Israel provide social services. One of the more difficult issues that this service deals with, is domestic violence. The present research evaluated management of referred cases to the Family Court Social Services, according to two criteria: reaching agreement and receiving treatment. Of 272 cases 53 per cent reached successful outcomes. Additional findings indicate that when the referral to the unit is made earlier, and if the marriage duration has been short, the probability of successful referral increases. The study also found that monitoring of cases referred to other agencies needs to be improved.
