If your case includes minor children you must complete a 4-hour parenting class before the court will enter a final judgment and parenting plan. This includes divorce and paternity cases, meaning that this requirement applies to married and unmarried parents.
Before registering for a class, make sure that class is approved by the court in your county. Some counties require in person attendance at a parenting class, and may not recognize 'on-line' attendance. Otherwise, its up to you whether you take an on-line or in-person class. You can find many more providers by searching 'parenting classes' on the internet.
Parenting classes must be at least 4 hours in duration, designed pursuant to Florida family law to provide information to parents as that information relates to court actions between parents involving parental responsibility, care, time-sharing, and support of a child or children.
Each class will include a required 25 question multiple choice test designed to demonstrate the level of comprehension of the learning objectives by the participant. You will be required to pass the test to receive a certificate of completion.
Parenting class providers may charge a reasonable fee for the class, generally around $40.00. After completing the class you will receive a certificate of completion, which should be filed with the court to inform the judge that you have complied with the requirement to take a parenting class.
If you are considering divorce, or have been served with divorce papers, and you case involves minor children, you will be required to attend and complete a parenting class before the court will enter a final judgment in your case.
