Kids First provides free legal representation to children in high-conflict divorce and custody cases. Services are targeted at Linn County youth ages 6-17 who are at risk because of these custody battles. Children of high-conflict divorce are even more vulnerable than children of amicable divorce to suffer from emotional and behavioral problems, abuse drugs and alcohol, fail in school and have failed relationships as adults. A majority of Kids First clients come from at-risk families that have some combination of substance abuse, mental illness, and domestic violence. Many parents are so overwhelmed by the fighting and litigation that they do not attend to their children’s needs.
