Connecticut Protective Moms

Keeping Children Safe in Family Court

Our Mission

Connecticut Protective Moms (CPM) is a 501 (c) (3) grassroots organization of Connecticut moms who are dedicated to improving the Connecticut Family Court process to validate all forms of Domestic Violence (DV) including physical, coercive control, emotional, verbal, financial and legal abuse.  Our main objective is to connect Connecticut abuse victims in family court proceedings to one another to engage in peer-to-peer support to help them navigate their custody cases to keep their children safe. In addition, by raising awareness and educating Connecticut Family Court stakeholders on this broader definition of DV, we will advocate to reform state legislation to protect mothers and their children from continued DV during Family Court proceedings and to eliminate bias against a mother's abuse allegations during child custody proceedings.


The lack of education and knowledge of DV abuser tactics among family court professionals - judges, lawyers, GALs, forensic evaluators -  during divorce and family court proceedings often put moms and children at further risk of abuse and danger. Our objective is to educate victims to learn how to navigate the family court system pro se to assure that their abuse allegations are validated, not ignored. We also hope to change the "default" position of laws, court orders, and social attitudes in general to see moms and children protected not only before, but during and after they step into a family court for divorce from an abusive individual. CPM will raise awareness of new and stronger legislative solutions to family court legislation and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of children.  

Please consider joining us or supporting us. And most importantly, please support and validate ALL victims of domestic abuse and help them tell their story.
