Divorcing Parents' Seminar

Divorcing Parents' Seminar

The Parenting Seminar is required for Divorcing parents with minor children. While some parties begrudge this requirement, these seminars are completed in a few hours and offer some invaluable information to parents going through divorce. Regardless of blame or fault, the children are innocent and very worthy of this time investment. These seminars are held several times a year and must often be completed before the case may be resolved. The deadline to complete this requirement is usually 30 days from the standing order but must be completed before the final order is signed by the court. The specific requirements of each county’s program are different. Parenting seminar information for various greater metro Atlanta counties are listed below. Contact your attorney to learn more about any requirements that may affect you and your divorce action. To obtain the most accurate and up to date information, please check with each county. A link to each county’s web site is provided for your convenience. Please check in with the course to ensure that the time and date has not changed.
