This program offers court-mandated classes for parents going through divorce or separation who have children under the age of 18.
This 6-hour course (2 three-hour sessions), available at a cost of $80.00, provides practical skills that parents can use to reduce the negative impact of divorce and separation while working to improve communication between themselves and their children. New courses begin each month at locations in Fall River, Dartmouth, Easton, East Wareham, Taunton and Attleboro. Sessions are held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as Saturday mornings
This program is approved and required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Trial Court, Probate and Family Court Department. (See a copy of the standing order indicating that requirement HERE.)
Although they are not currently offered, the program also periodically features a Children's Group, designed to help them understand the changes in their family and the feelings that often accompany those changes. The groups meet on Saturday mornings. Two group sessions, each lasting three hours, are required for completion of the program. The total cost is $10 per child.
