The Act requires the perpetrator of family violence to undergo a certified family violence intervention program. These programs are charged a fee to be considered by the Department of Corrections for certification under the Act. Once approved, these programs may not solicit business and must agree in writing to satisfy the Act's requirements. The Department of Corrections retains the authority to deny, suspend, or revoke a certificate for any program not complying with the Act's requirements. The Act creates the State Commission on Family Violence to develop a comprehensive plan to end family violence.
