Certified Family Violence Intervention Program (FVIP)

O.C.G.A. 19-13-16(a) states that a court, in addition to imposing any penalty provided by law, when sentencing a defendant or revoking a defendant’s probation for an offense involving family violence, or when imposing a protective order against family violence, shall order the defendant to participate in a family violence intervention program unless the court determines and states on the record why participation in such a program is not appropriate.
