Family Court is a court, through which, domestic issues involving family members are dealt with, and decisions made by a Judge are considered to be penal orders. A Penal order is an order given by a judge based on the Penal Code, which are laws, a judge uses to guide his/her deliberations and decisions in Family Court.

The Penal Code relating to issues within Family Court usually cover: Domestic violence: Protective orders such as Emergency Protective orders for spouses and/or children; Protective orders for parents and/or children; Domestic Violence restraining order, which is equivalent to a Protective order and Child custody and Child custody mediation, which usually made available through Superior courts.

In addition to these the Penal code for family court has references to regulating contract and employee mediators, evaluators, investigators and counselors. Those who provide services to families involved in Family court proceedings. Finally, the Penal code governs the process for assessing the nature of domestic violence issues in a family in order to provide maximum protection for victims of domestic violence. One goal is to balance, the imbalance of power created through past and future domestic violent episodes.

"Any order issued in writing from a Family Court judge is a penal order." Furthermore, it is an enforcible document; those who violate this order can be charged with a misdeanor, at the minimum. A greater charge could also be made for a crime committed at the time the order was violated. For instance, if someone breaks a protective order, which leads to a violent act against the person being protected, the perpetrator would be guilty of a misdeanor and a crime. The perpetrator would then arrested.
