The stresses of divorce and custody disputes are very often quite traumatic for both the divorcing parents and the children involved. Whatís more, the entire situation can be costly and time-consuming Ė which only leads to more stress and discord among an already fractured group.
As an alternative, APCS offers a custody mediation service so divorcing parents can reach agreement on custody issues. As part of the service, a mediator works with the couple and the children to find a reasonable solution.
Unlike a judge, the mediator does not impose a decision on the parents. Instead, he or she helps parents reach a fair and reasonable agreement that focuses on what is in the best interests of their children.
Employee Assistance Program
Itís true that employees sometimes have serious personal problems that greatly affect their work Ė and may even put them at risk. Thatís where an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can help.

Providing established EAP programs for many local businesses, APCS also makes recommendations for drug testing, policy development and wellness training.
Itís a fact that EAP services help to increase productivity, reduce absenteeism, reduce workplace accidents and ensure appropriate usage of health care benefits. Isnít that what you want for your employees?
