Our approach to helping parents is rooted in what is best for children.
After a break up the best thing you can do for your children is work together with your ex. It can be excruciatingly difficult. That’s understandable — it’s not a matter of maturity or blame. The destructive patterns of communication and all the negativity that was created during the relationship stays after the commitment to working things out leaves. There may be intense feelings of mistrust, hurt, blame, and anger. Your ex might be the last person on earth you feel like interacting with. Under these less than ideal circumstances you are expected to negotiate and stick to an extremely complex agreement involving what you both value the most — your children.
It’s unsurprising that these talks often break down and a couple turns to the Family Court system to work things out. While the Family Court system can be very helpful by deciding what is in the best interests of the child, it is a notoriously slow and expensive process that pits parents against each other when they should be working together.
The good news is that co-parenting is a skill that can be learned. With guidance and support even situations that seem hopeless can become workable, functional relationships. Often parents just need some help dealing with a very difficult, very confusing situation. We are here to provide that help.
