Divorce / Custody useful links

I thought I would put together a basic list of resources that people starting off on the road of divorce/custody that might serve as useful places to start.
(I havent included where to find a decent lawyer...for good reason. I think personal recommendation on this subject is best.)

For initial questions/information go the social services department of your local Geminde socialhilfe (German speaking Switzerland) or Mairie (French speaking Switzerland . They have lots of useful information on useful departments & associations, where to go for legal advise, collection of child support/alimony & more - they are there to help you. I find them quite helpful...once they knew I wasnt after money that is

Debt issues
Online counseling
Budget issues
Children and Youth

Some sites below are only in the local Swiss languages (German, French, Italian) therefore try to use a website translator such as google translate to translate whole webpages - not perfect but useful.

International Social Services:
www.ssiss.ch (site is in English)

www.ch.ch (site is in English)



www.stadt-zuerich.ch > social services
> advisory service for mums & dads
> child support/alimony collection

www.admin.ch > Swiss civil code
> family law

www.litigation.ch > cost of litigation

Re: Divorce / Custody useful links

Great work. Thank-you.
I've added a link to this in the 'Separation / Divorce' Thread. Then it can be found by anyone searching in the Sticky at the top of this sub-forum.
