Will I need to take a parenting class before the court will finalize my divorce?

Parents frequently ask this question and the answer is yes. In divorce cases involving children, both parents must take a parenting class.

Each spouse will need to pay for their class and the price, length, and content of the classes vary by county.

Usually, parents take the classes early in the divorce process. Your divorce can’t be finalized until you finish the course.
