Because of the ballooning number of divorce cases worldwide, the judicial system has required that parents who are splitting up should take parenting classes to prevent neglect and/or abuse of the child (or children) who are caught right smack in the middle of divorce proceedings. In fact, no divorce would be granted with finality if both parents have not taken parenting classes.
Thankfully, recognizing the busy schedules of some parents, it is now possible to get this valuable instruction through online court-accepted parenting classes. If you are undergoing divorce proceedings and it is required of you to go for parenting classes, here are some tips to help find court-approved classes on the Internet.
How To Find Parenting Classes Online
First of all, make inquiries from your relatives or friends if they have any online parenting classes that they could recommend. You might want to specifically ask this information from friends or acquaintances who have divorced. They might have some good recommendations based on their own personal experiences.
Secondly, do an online search. Just typing the keywords “online parenting classes” in the search engine will give you several pages. You can narrow your choices down by indicating your location. Make a list of the parenting classes that seem right for your needs. Next, visit their websites one by one and see what classes and services they are offering. Jot down their contact information. It is advisable them that you email them for more information or you can call them up directly by phone.
You can also find good online parenting classes by checking out reviews and testimonials. Because there are so many online classes being offered, reviews and testimonials from people who have taken these parenting courses can provide important insight on the quality of their instruction. You can also email some of the reviewers to get more information.
One great way to find good online parenting classes is by directly asking the judge (or court officials) or your local city hall if they have any classes that they could recommend. Most of the time, the courts will provide a list of accredited online classes. By getting recommendations directly from the courts, you are more or less guaranteed that the classes you will be going to have received the highest marks from the judicial system and will, hopefully, hasten the resolution of divorce proceedings.
If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are in the middle of the divorce process, it is highly advisable that you look for an online parenting class as soon as possible. Delays or failure to do so can result in charges of contempt of court or failure to obey a court order, which would not only result in fines, but may also affect the judge’s decision regarding child custody. Perhaps the most important reason why you should take online parenting classes is your child. Because he or she will now be raised by a single parent, you need to be properly equipped to handle all of the responsibilities.
