Domestic Relations Clinic

Tuesday, September 17, 2019
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Athens County Children Services presents a Domestic Relations Clinic entitled "Children In The Middle" to divorcing parents residing in Athens County in cooperation with the Domestic Relations Court of Athens County.

Attendance at this two and a half hour clinic is required by the Domestic Relations Court. The clinic was recently extended an extra half hour in order to allow personnel from the Child Support Enforcement Agency to present an educational session in order to inform parents of their procedures in an effort to prevent problems resulting from lack of understanding of the system functions. The court sends a letter to each parent when they file for divorce or disolution informing them of this attendance requirement. There is a $10.00 cash charge for each participant to cover the costs accrued by ACCS. A folder is distributed to each participant containing pertinent parenting information, and much additional information is available for participants. The Domestic Relations Clinic is offered on the lower level of building 14 at Stonybrook Drive at ACCS, with parking available in the rear lot. The clinic is from 5:30 - 8:00 PM. Parents may decide whether to attend the same or different sessions, in accordance with their particular circumstances. 

The Domestic Relations Clinic offers information and advice on achieving the best outcomes for children and families during this transition in their lives, general discussion of divorce related issues as they pertain to children, and presentation of the "Children In The Middle" video. The focus is on making the best possible future for children of divorce by encouraging communication, cooperation and compromise between co-parents.

Please call 592-3061 to register for the clinic.
