  • Understand the effects of divorce/separation on children.
  • See the ways in which children are exposed to parental conflict, and learn methods to eliminate conflict in front of their child(ren).

  • Acquire methods to help children have healthy access to both parents
  • ​Learn ways to put the best interest of the child(ren) first.
  • Have an understanding of how to make adjustments in finances to account for the financial changes that divorce/separation brings, with the objective to minimize the impact on their child(ren).
