1. BASIC SEMINAR FOR FOR CO-PARENTS
The Basic seminar is a lecture-based class that is typically ordered when parents first separate or divorce. PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR COURT ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE CHOOSING THE CORRECT CLASS.

NAVIGATING FAMILY CHANGE – ENGLISH – ALL CLASSES ARE ONLINE
NAVIGATING FAMILY CHANGE – ESPAÑOL (SPANISH) – ALL CLASSES ARE ONLINE
2. ADVANCED ISSUES IN CO-PARENTING WORKSHOP
The Advanced Workshop is an interactive class that is typically ordered for parents who are perceived to be high conflict or are seeking a custody modification. PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR COURT ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE CHOOSING THE CORRECT CLASS.
Cost is $150/person. A court order is not required, however, you must have a case number. Co-parents cannot attend together, so once one parent reserves a spot with the case number, the other parent cannot attend a class on the same date and must choose another date. Space is limited to 10 participants per class, so early registration is suggested.
