NHPSC expands to help families experiencing divorce

Having recently relocated to their new space in Dover, the New Hampshire Parenting Support Center (NHPSC) has expanded its capacity to assist families experiencing a divorce. Specializing in cases that require court intervention, NHPSC now offers supervised visitation for children and parents in a more comfortable and home-like environment as a result of its move.

“Our new facility helps to enhance the therapeutic aspect of our services,” said NHPSC Co-Founder Nancy Blais, who cited strong ties to the court and mental health system. “We are a known entity among many judges, so our goal now is to work more closely with mental health centers and hospitals who may be able to refer our services to families in need.”

Certified as a Guardian ad Litem since 2005, Blais has a Masters of Education in Guidance and Counseling and has served in divorceguardian cases and abuse/neglect and termination of parental rights cases in Strafford and Rockingham County. She is joined by Co-Founder Chris Burns, principal attorney of Burns Legal Services. Burns experience includes both civil and criminal cases in a variety of courts, including the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

“We will even go into the home and meet with parents and children on ‘their turf’ if they can’t or don’t want to come to the Center,” Burns added. “We are committed to reunifying families and serving as a resource for southern New Hampshire and Maine…Divorce does not have to be so painful.”
