We help parents —Single, Separated, Divorced— develop parenting plans, resolve family conflicts, and deal with legal matters concerning their children. Common issues include Parenting Time (Access and Visitation), Divorce, Child Support, Paternity, Parental Relocation, Domestic Abuse, and Parental and Grandparents’ Rights. Clients can enter our programs on their own, be referred by the court or from another agency.
Services include parenting seminars, a pro-bono family legal clinic, family mediation, domestic abuse intervention, and referrals to other agencies providing services that can help clients resolve their issues. Special programs are available for never-married parents, adolescent parents, veterans, and families dealing with domestic abuse or child welfare issues. Our goals are to help parents meet the needs of their children, to reduce family conflict, and the need for court and Department of Children’s Services intervention.
We recognize that each family situation is unique, and so are the needs of each child. We do not advocate one type of parenting style over another; or one parent over the other. Parenting is not custody, nor is parenting time a possession. We are a 501 (c )(3)non-profit offering services regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnic background. No one is turned away because of an inability to pay.
