Taking Care of Yourself

After a family transition like divorce or separation, courts and social service providers often worry about the well-being of the children. Children are important but so are their parents! If you don’t take care of your own needs, you will probably not have the energy and resources needed to take care of your children’s needs.

The resources on this site offer tips to help you take care of your own legal, emotional, social, and financial needs.
