Divorcing Parents Seminar

Divorcing Parents Seminar Registration
Because of the extremely emotional nature of divorce and its impact on children, the Cobb County Superior Court Judges enacted a local rule of court mandating divorcing parents of children under the age of 18 to attend a four-hour educational seminar entitled “Helping Children Cope With Divorce: A Seminar for Divorcing Parents”.  The purpose of the seminar is to provide parents with information on topics including the divorce process and how it impacts children, developmental stages of children, communication skills, identifying when a child may need help, and realistic expectations about step families.

The course is conducted by professional counselors who can help the parents identify and respond to the best interest of their children.  The class is offered three times each month (see the online registration form for a schedule).  Beginning in January of 2016, the cost will increase to $50.00 per participant.  Evaluations of this seminar have consistently shown that at least 94% of past participants felt that the course was helpful to them during the divorce process.

Please do not bring children to the workshop.  They will not be allowed into the classroom, and child care is not provided.

For further information, please call the ADR office at (770) 528-1812.

Beginning in January of 2016, you will complete the seminar by attending ONE Thursday morning seminar or ONE Monday evening seminar.

Please also note the change in times.
