State-Approved Parent Education and Family Stabilization Course

A Parenting Course (or sometimes called Divorce Class) is required by the state of Florida for parents or the concerned parties to obtain a divorce when there are children involved. Parents may also take this course to learn about the impacts divorce can have on their family, as well as the best way to handle the difficult transition. Additionally, make sure you understand the process of filing for a divorce.

State-Approved Parent Education and Family Stabilization Course
Florida Parenting Class
Our Parent Education and Family Stabilization course is approved by the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) and will meet your court requirement. The Florida DCF works hard to support the stabilization of families, not only for those involved, but for the communities around them. Research has proven that unstable families or families that end in divorce adversely impact communities and government economically and socially.
