THK CFH @ Commonwealth

THK Centre for Family Harmony @ Commonwealth is one of the four Divorce Support Specialist Agencies (DSSAs) that play a key role in supporting families and children who are affected by divorce. Initiated by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, the long term goal of the Divorce Support Specialist Agency is for families and their children to achieve stability and self-reliance.

  • Make an informed decision on divorce
  • Come to terms with the divorce
  • Achieve cooperative co-parenting
  • Resolve the underlying conflict
  • Manage problems and challenges on their own
