Welcome to our Relationship pages
When marriages or partnerships break up and there are children involved relationships between all parties can often become hugely stressful. If you are lucky, you will have a supportive family and a close network of friends that can support you through what will undoubtedly be tough times, however sometimes you may need more support. As well as the huge emotional turmoil that you and your children will have to face there are the many practical issues that will need to be addressed. You will have to face many new challenges as seperating parents, not least, caring for your children which will often be hugely demanding as children grow and their demands change.
What we have tried to do in these pages is to guide you to sites that we hope will give you some immediate support and guidance in those early days and beyond.
