About Families Change

This website provides age-appropriate information to help kids, teens and parents deal with a family break up. The website was produced by the Justice Education Society in collaboration with Legal Services Vermont.

The site content was authored with input from family counsellors, guidance counsellors, 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.

Funding for this site was provided by a Technology Initiative Grant from the Legal Services Corporation, Washington, D.C.


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