CUSTODY, SEPARATION & DIVORCE

When a parent/caregiver relationship shifts and the family unit changes, it is important to support children and youth in coping with the changes. Common discussions between adults relate to custody, parent communication, boundaries, ensuring children thrive and listening to your children. For more information, please email Susan Cowman from our parent support team.
