Video-Conference Co-Parenting

Co-Parenting is a 4 1/2 hour one-time educational online seminar for parents around ongoing cooperative parenting issues. The objective of this online seminar is to assist parents in creating a functional divorce, where each family member is moving toward healing from this family change and rebuilding their lives. This online seminar will encourage parents to assist their children during this family transition, emphasize the importance of workable communication between co-parents, and provide tools to meet the ever-changing needs of their children. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the seminar. This program satisfies the court requirement for Co-Parenting.

**Parents in a contested divorce are required by Minnesota state law to attend eight hours of parent education, which is satisfied by taking both Video-Conference Co-Parenting Class and Legal and Economic Aspects of Divorce (LEAD). Parents can attend together or alone.**

Class Format

This is an online seminar which is instructor-led and conducted through video-conferencing. You will be able to see and hear other participants throughout the class. Participants will be guided through the Co-Parenting curriculum by a trained facilitator and will be able to ask questions and make comments throughout the course. This online course is taught in English.

The benefits of this group video-conference seminar is 1) convenience, 2) price, 3) ability to interact with others going through similar situations, 4) access to a highly-qualified trained facilitator. 

Following completion of the online seminar, you will be emailed a PDF certificate for you to print at your convenience and submit to your lawyer or applicable Court personnel. Please keep a copy for your records.
