Clark County’s Family Court received a $40,000 grant from the Indiana Supreme Court on Tuesday.

The Clark County Family Court aims to avoid inconsistent orders and promote informed decision making through the coordination of multiple cases within the same family, sharing information between multiple courts, facilitating alternative dispute resolution and offering pretrial conferencing.

The grants are considered seed money and courts eventually become self-funding. The Indiana Family Court program began in 1999.

Judge Vicki Carmichael will serve as the lead judge on the project.
