Our Mission

Defusing the anxiety of divorce and custody

Developing a place where parents can go to keep kids first exists to simplify and “defuse” the divorce and child custody process, making it less stressful for everyone involved. We focus on reducing the anxiety linked with legal proceedings, evaluations, and co-parenting to make these steps more efficient, less costly, and more fulfilling.


Our main goal is to safeguard children's well-being during their parents' divorce. Offering early guidance, education, emotional support, and additional resources, we draw on over fifty years of research across various fields to ensure our approach makes the legal journey smoother and more accessible for families.

Happy children
