Why do I need to attend the Parent’s Education Program?

When there are unemancipated children involved in a divorce, parents in New Jersey are required to attend the Parent’s Education Program.  This program is adminstered by the Court and you and your spouse will be scheduled for different days.

When my client’s receive the scheduling notice for this program, the majority of them instantly call me and ask me why they need to attend as they already know how to be parents.

The purpose of the program is not to teach you how to be a parent – although such a class would benefit a great number of people – it is intended to offer insight and guidance on how to navigate the divorce process while keeping the welfare and interests of your children in mind.
