Seminar for Separating Parents ("COPE" Class)

When parents separate, children may have a hard time adjusting. To help lessen the impact on the children, the Court might require separating parents to attend a seminar where they will learn:

  • How to focus on the needs of the children
  • How to lower the stress of the children
  • How to co-parent and work together for the benefit of the children

The parents do not have to go to the class together.

Classes are offered in English and Spanish, in person and online. The class takes about 3-5 hours and costs around $40-45/person. At the end of the class, parents will get a Certificate of Completion to file with the Court.
