The Navigating Family Change: A Parent Seminar is a four-hour educational seminar required of specific domestic actions involving a child or children under 18 years of age where the parties are involved in a divorce, separate maintenance, paternity, change of custody, visitation, legitimation, and any other domestic action, excluding contempt, and generally, domestic violence. The program shall be successfully completed within 31 days of service of the original complaint upon the original defendant. Appropriate action, including but not limited to contempt, may be taken upon a party's failure to successfully complete the workshop. Parties do not have to attend the seminar with their spouses or ex-spouses. Children are not allowed in the workshop. Pre-registration is required.

Below are comments collected from exit surveys of attendees:

  • "I really loved this seminar. I came in today and was very angry to attend. However this is what I needed to take good care of myself and my children. Thank you!"
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed the class ... It went fast and the speakers did a great job keeping the audience's attention. The humor helped."
  • "Great workshop. I'm a psychologist for a local school system and I even learned quite a few things."
  • "I felt overwhelmed at the fee as my spouse left us to live on $600 per month ... $30 was a huge sacrifice, but worth every penny. Thank you!"
  • "At first I was hesitant to take this seminar, yet it is by far the best I have attended. The two instructors were excellent and I would advise many people to attend! Very resourceful."
