​​​​The 12th Annual Battered Mothers Custody Conference May 6th - 8th, 2016  Albany, NY

The Battered Mothers Custody Conference is an annual, weekend-long event that addresses the pattern of serious legal injustices encountered by battered women who approach the family/divorce court system seeking protection for themselves and their children from an abusive spouse or partner.  It brings together the nation’s top experts on intimate partner abuse, child abuse, and child custody litigation and protective issues, who volunteer their time at the BMCC to educate the public and to support, consult, and network with battered mothers from across the country.


Nancy S. Erickson, Esq. explains why the NY Court of Appeals ruling in  Matter of Brooke S.B. v Elizabeth A.C.C.

is a "Victory for Battered women and their children".  BMCC was one of the battered women's organizations

​on an amicus brief authored by Sanctuary for Families that was cited by the Court in its decision.
