Parents of Divorce Class

Before your divorce is filed you will need to attend a mandatory 4-hour Parents of Divorce class.  (This class is often called a Parent Education and Family Stabilization Course.)  The list of the court approved providers can be found at  (Scroll down to find the approved providers in your judicial circuit.) Depending on the rules in your circuit you may be able to complete the class on-line.  It is wise to talk to more than one provider before you select a class.  Discuss (with your spouse, your mediator, and the course provider) if it is better to take the class alone or with your spouse.  Most judges will allow you to attend the class on-line.  However, typically, attending the class in person will give you a much richer experience.  Discuss this with your mediator to find any restrictions specific to your geographic location.
