Parent Education Program

Before attending the mandatory mediation session, every parent must attend the Parent Education Program (PE). The goals of this program include:

  1. Helping parents cope with changes in the family and focus on their children's needs.
  2. Educating parents about the mediation and study process and the legal procedures in family court.

Parent Education is scheduled twice monthly. This program is intended for adults only and appropriate childcare arrangements should be made. If you are unable to attend Parent Education on the date assigned to you, it is very important that you call FCS and reschedule as soon as you are aware of any conflicts. You may reschedule only one time. There is a $40.00 charge payable in cash at the door. Significant others are encouraged to attend, and may attend free of charge. If there are any no contact conditions between the parents, they will be assigned separate Parent Education Programs.

Parent Education is presented by the Family Court Counselors.
