Parent Education Programs

 

Do you need to attend the Parent Education Programs?

Yes. Attendance and participation at an approved Parent Education Program by all parties to a divorce action in which there are minor children is mandatory in Massachusetts. The Probate and Family Court wants to make sure that parents are aware of their children's emotional needs and understand the effects of divorce on child behavior and development.

What should I expect from these Programs?

These programs are designed to help parents develop an awareness of the impact of divorce from the child's perspective. They are excellent and very short programs that take 2 or 3 days to complete. Parents can ask all sort of questions related to children involved in the process of divorce. These programs will help parents avoid mistakes concerning the way they relate to their children. We highly recommend attendance to these programs at an early stage in your divorce. This will benefit your child(ren).
