According to the 2012 U.S. Census, there was a recorded total of 851,000 divorces causing the divorce rate to rise 3.4 percent. Since then, U.S. Divorce statistics have lost significance and validity because of the many diverse families that make divorce and separation just one factor. It is an acceptable and realistic part of our culture; however, the impact of a divorce can negatively affect those around us if not handled carefully.
Without the proper steps, divorce can affect a child’s grades, lower confidence, and spark destructive behavior. Challenges that arise from divorce, such as adjusting to the physical separation from one parent, coordinating schedules, deciding which parent to spend holidays with, can cause added guilt and stress. NFRC’s early intervention with trained professionals helps make the impact of a divorce far less significant on your child.
This kind of transition is not easy on any family member. The reality is that the sudden change frequently happens overnight and parents are expected to resume normalcy the next day, as are the one million children under the age of 18 whose parents separate or divorce. NFRC provides hope to help families during these frightening and confusing times.
By engaging in the many programs that NFRC has to offer, every member of your family can find healing, understanding and coping tools during a time of family transition. Our programs are approved and recommended by lawyers and judges throughout the state, and our client base of 30,000 successful individuals and families speaks volumes.
