The divorce process can be a painful experience, emotionally, legally and financially. Often times, couples are concerned about the impact divorce may have on their children, family and finances.

One of the greatest fears about a divorce is that it will not only end a marriage but also destroy a family. However, research has shown that it is not the divorce itself that causes trauma to families rather it is how parents relate to each other during and after the separation that has the most impact on their children.
