Parents Forever

Education for Families
   in Divorce Transition

When a mother and father divorce, it is a major life change for all members of the family. Each family member's emotional, psychological, physical, and financial well being needs to be carefully considered.

Children are often affected for years to come by decisions that divorcing parents make during the initial legal phase of divorce.

The "Parents Forever" sessions listed are intended to provide divorcing couples or those contemplating divorce with the information they need to make decisions that will minimize the stress of this transition on the entire family.

Classes take place Tuesday nights. Couples are not allowed to attend together.
