Help for Children Dealing with Military Divorce

Military families possibly make more sacrifices than almost any other segment of the nation’s population. The children of these parents may experience even more confusion when their parents are facing a military divorce simply because they may already feel disconnected from other family members, especially if they have moved frequently due to base transfers. However, there may be some help for these children coming to one of the installations in Utah. It is important to keep in mind, though, that no one program can help resolve all of the issues involved in a divorce.

Through an outreach of the Sesame Street organization, along with a partnership with the USO, the popular children’s characters are touring several of the bases throughout the nation over the next year or so. The program was put together to reach out to the children of the armed forces. Many of the well-loved characters are being used in a new production that features a girl character that is learning to cope with the issues that many of these children face.

One of the topics that the Cookie Monster crowd will address is divorce in the military family. While children in the civilian population also experience this life change, the ones in the military may feel more isolated simply because they often move around and may not have close ties to extended family. The Sesame Workshop attempts to help these children develop coping skills that can enable them to deal with these situations in healthy ways.

In addition to traveling around the country to visit the children where they are, the program is free. There may be many base families that will attend these workshops that help children develop the tools to handle issues such as a military divorce with a positive approach. The decision to file for a divorce is most likely not entered into without careful consideration for all of the ways life will change, both for the couple and their offspring. Now, for some of the military families in Utah, there may be some help for the younger children in the form of beloved characters that may help them with the transitions that follow divorce. There are also resources available that parents may turn to for information concerning how to settle all of the matters that are part and parcel of a family break-up.

Overall from start to finish the best experience to have dealing with a time that is difficult.Andrew Christensen is very professional and out going to make this situation the best it could be and worked hard to make sure the divorce was fair for me.Over all, this firm really cares and treats you as a family or friend and just not a client, down to Marco Brown taking time to see how I was doing and offer to help in any way possible during my divorce while I was there for my first initial meeting.I would highly recommend anyone that has to go through a divorce to really reach out to the Brown Family Law firm and see for your self the experience I was able to receive from a top notch law firm.
Response from the owner: Devin, thank you for the kind words. Andrew appreciated the opportunity to help you with your situation.
Sophie was very helpful and explains the process and fees. Thank you!
Response from the owner: Corey, thank you for the kind words. Glad we could help.
My attorney Amy Pomeroy and assistant Melanie and Dani are awesome! It’s an easy case but due to the opposite party was failed to respond, the process went much longer than we expect. During the process Amy gets the necessary job done as quick as she can. The assistants made the most documentation jobs done in a reasonable time. I will get phone call or message to communicate for the status, what’s the next step, what should I expect. In the end, it’s a huge win. So I definitely recommend Brown Family Law. They are professional and handle the case very well.
Response from the owner: Yue, thank you for the kind words. Glad Amy was able to help you so well.
Dani always kept me updated and has great communication skills.

My experience with Brown Family Law is a positive one. I highly recommend them. This firm has very good communication with their clients. Attorney Paul Waldron represents me and I’m very happy with the experience. My questions and concerns are always answered quickly and respectfully. I’m grateful to have Mr. Waldron and Brown Family Law in my corner during this difficult time for my family.
Response from the owner: Jodie, glad we were able to communicate with you so effectively and quickly. Thank you for your kind words.
I recently used Clay in a divorce case and could not have been happier. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel like I was his only client. The process was easy and he was always there to reassure me or help me with decisions. I would highly recommend Brown Family Law.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Mendi.
Dani excelled as a paralegal, providing crucial support with exceptional skills!

I highly recommend Nathaniel and his team. They listened to me, navigated me, educated me, and always called when they said they would. Going through a divorce was very hard but they helped me get through it and showed compassion the whole time.
