Do I have to take a parenting class?
Yes, if the parties have a minor child or children together, each parent must attend a mandatory Parent Information Program class to learn about the impact of divorce on children. Both parents are required to attend the parenting class separately, even if they do not have any disagreements regarding custody of their children. If one parent fails to attend the Court-mandated class, that parent may not be allowed to have custody and/or parenting time with their child(ren) until they complete the class.
