Do I have to take a parenting class?
If you have children under age 18 involved in your separation, you must take the mandatory class called Children Coping with Divorce. Both parties are supposed to complete this class, but the minimum requirement is that the petitioner completes the class. The judge will not finalize your separation unless you have taken this class. For more information visit the Children Coping with Divorce page.
