Your concerns about separation and divorce

Are your parents getting divorced and nobody is asking you what you want?

If your parents split up or get divorced, there will be many questions that need to be addressed.

  • Where will you live?
  • How often will you see your mother or father?
  • Who will make important decisions for you?

Many decisions impact you directly.You have the right to have your say. And you have the right to be informed about what has been decided.

Do you feel that nobody is listening to you or that you are not being taken seriously? Then give us a call!

What is meant by visiting rights?

If your parents don't live together, then it is unlikely that you will be able to see them both equally often. You probably live mostly either with your mother or with your father. And you most likely visit the other parent at the weekend or during holidays.

What is meant by hearings?

Whenever it’s about you, it is important that you are listened to and that your opinion matters. This is your right. If the court or the KESB (Child and Adult Protection Authority) make a decision that impacts you, they will invite you to a hearing. At the hearing, you will be listened to and you can ask questions.

What is meant by Ombuds Office?

The KESB (Child and Adult Protection Authority), social workers, courts and the police are there to provide you with help and support and to safeguard your rights. However, there are also times when things do not work as they should. In such cases, you can contact us and we will help you.
