Divorce's Effect on Children

When getting a divorce it is very important to consider how that will affect you both practically and financially, however one thing that should not be overlooked is how the most important assets in your life are also adapting to the changes- your children.   Parents should not overlook the fact that they may be confused about the changes and not understand why it is happening or what it means. 

At the Law Offices of Stephanie Lee Ehrbright, we are dedicated to helping you through the entire process of your divorce.  Our Firm has a library of books and videos for children of all ages to help explain and ease the transition.  Any client is welcome to browse the library and check out any of the books or videos for their children free of cost.   Below is a current list of our library.  All books and DVD’s are also available at Amazon.com and local book retailers.
