About Families Change

This website provides age-appropriate information to help kids, teens, and parents deal with a family breakup.

Its content was authored with input from family counselors, guidance counselors, psychologists, lawyers, parents, teens, and kids. The website provides general information about the law. It does not provide legal advice. Each person’s family is different and for this reason, the website does not replace the specialized guidance that may be provided by lawyers and other professionals.

This website was produced by Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut and CTLawHelp.org in collaboration with the Justice Education Society. Funding for this project was provided by the Legal Services Corporation Technology Initiative Grant Program.


A fun, interactive game for kids ages 6-10. Explore Changeville to learn how other kids deal with a family break up.
