Why Divorce and Parenting Education?
Like many life experiences, until you experience a divorce or separate parenting, it is difficult to know what to expect or how to succeed. Participating in divorce and parenting education classes is an excellent way to expand your knowledge, increase your confidence and maintain control of your life. YDP classes satisfy State and County divorce and parenting education requirements. Each class is 4 hours long and may be taken in any order or independently as needed / court ordered.
These classes are most effective when taken at the beginning of your divorce process. It is recommended that you attend these classes separately from your spouse/partner.
Fees: $40 per participant per class if pre-registered and pre-paid OR $50 per participant at the door. Reduced fees are available for those with a verifiable need. We honor all court IFPs. Register online or by calling the phone number for your location.
