Why are courts actively creating educational programs for separated and divorcing parents and children? The short answer is that they offer an extremely valuable service: information and perspective. They help parents and children normalize their experiences and begin to understand the emotional, social, and legal complexities of divorce and separation. The objective is not to resolve specific disputes, but to provide parents with information and an incentive to resolve conflicts collaboratively.
