Parenting Seminar Information in Atlanta, Georgia

The Divorcing Parents Seminar provides parents with information on topics, including the divorce process and how it impacts children, developmental stages of children, communication skills, identifying when a child may need help, and realistic expectations about step-families.

Evaluations of this seminar have consistently shown that at least 94% of past participants felt that the course was helpful to them during the divorce process.

The state of Georgia requires all parents to attend a Parenting Seminar in their county. The case cannot be completed until both parents have successfully completed a seminar. A Certificate of Completion will be issued at the end of the program. Below is a list of counties with a link provided for information in that county. You MUST register for a seminar. They do not accept walk-ins.

Both parents do not need to attend at the same time, and you will need to complete prior to your final hearing or final settlement. Please schedule this class as soon as possible as some counties require it be completed in the first 30 days of litigation. Please send me an email letting me know once you have completed the class along with a copy of the certificate of completion. Some counties offer an online class; please do not take that class the courts do not recognize the online classes and you will not receive credit.
