Abstract: The Technical Advisory Service (SATAF) of Catalonia’s Family Court consists of four different professional teams which respectively assist in their own province. The SATAF has the objective of advising the judge with respect to their demands in family matters. The Service provides the judge with psychosocial elements, which have been validated within the members of the professional team, to ease the taking of judicial decisions that guarantee the best interest of the child, as well as, encouraging a reflection upon the new family realities. With the new law 1/04 of December 28th , which regulates Integral Protection Measures against gender violence, and the creation and the putting into practice of the gender violence courts last June 29th 2005, the judicial demands of our professional teams’ services have increased. In such demands, the judge requires a further study of the family circumstances which involve violent and conflictive factors, with significance to the court decisions and measures to be implemented. Consequence of this present situation, this study has the objective of evaluating the demands received, as well as, the characteristics of the cases attended by our Service, the parental capacities and all other aspects related to the technical intervention process and the final evaluations. A sample of 51 cases is analysed at descriptive levels. This sample represents the total number of families attended by the Service in 2006, which have been sent to our professional teams by these new gender violence courts.
