Re: Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) Information

Attached you will find a series of articles issued by the American Bar Association related to the implementation of ASFA. Among the articles is information relating to the impact of ASFA on the juvenile justice system.

We are in the process of discussing a training initiative on ASFA with the Department of Justice and the Office of Judicial Education in the Director of State Courts Office. We hope to have more information to you in the near future.

Thank you for your efforts in implementing these important federal law changes.
