Do I have to take a parenting class?

If you have minor children (under age 18) involved in your divorce, you must take the mandatory class called Online Parenting Programs. Both parties are supposed to attend this class, but the minimum requirement is that the petitioner completes the class. The judge will not finalize your divorce unless you have taken this class. For more information visit the Parenting Classes page.
