Separation or divorce which involves determining the care, well-being, and residence of a minor child, is an overwhelming and life altering event.

It can be extremely emotional and challenging, while you try to find the resources you need and ensure that the situation is handled in such a manner that is in your children’s best interest.

In times of need, there are many organizations and individuals who are available to help. We serve to provide support and education to families while further connecting them to additional resources for their specific needs.

We focus on providing families with the knowledge to successfully raise children after divorce and separation, teaching the significance of co-parenting and shared parenting for the overall well-being of children.

We support children and those who love them, including fathers, mothers, alienated parents, single parents, step-parents, and grandparents. We are based out of Washington state, serving all of the U.S. states, and our message reaches 45 countries
