ABSTRACT
The author comments on the court case Nicholson versus Scopetta wherein a mother has been a victim of domestic violence. According to the author, the case shows that it is almost always better to remove the batterer from the house and retain the mother and her children together. She provides information on the policy of the Administration for Child Services and the New York case law prior to the case. She also discusses the positive effects of the case on hearing other domestic violence-related cases in the country.
