Online Help

We live in a world where family conflicts occur on a daily basis. Such situations are very painful and we may not always be prepared to face them. We are here to help and support you!

It is important to talk and to seek help from people endowed with the expertise to guide you. Friends and family members do not always have all the information that could help you even though they are at your side to support you during difficult moments in your life.

It is important neither to wait too long time nor to commit irreversible acts during this most trying life experience since this could have long-term consequences. It is also crucial not to use children as “bargaining chips” in order to inflict pain on a former spouse/partner. Children are innocent bystanders and they love their parents.

During a separation or divorce, it is essential that the best interest of the children be considered at all times and every situation can be settled by avoiding unfortunate repercussions for the children.

The confidential services of CHILDREN NOW’s help line are offered to you from Monday to Friday during regular office hours. We offer an attentive ear and legal information while presenting the available options and by referring you to the appropriate resources. The organisation possesses a data bank which includes more than 2 000 community resources, self-help groups and legal services.
