Dealing with parenting classes for child custody

by | Jul 26, 2015 | Child Custody, Firm News |

Dealing with divorce that involves child custody situations can be scary, because your life with your child could be on the line. However, in most cases, both parents are able to have an equal hand in the life of their child.

In order to have equal custody, you will need to first prove that you are fit to be a parent by taking and receiving certification from a parenting class. This may seem like an unnecessary or even insulting step to some, but it is necessary if you wish to prove to the courts that you will be an acceptable person to be taking care of your child. This is something that you want to prove, because your ex-spouse will likely get full custody otherwise.

Both parents must take the parenting class. In the class, you must be able to prove a number of things. These things can include your ability to honor time-sharing schedules, your ability to prioritize the needs of your child over the needs of yourself or your ex-spouse, your moral fitness, your ability to provide consistent schedules for the child, and your capacity to maintain a stable and drug-free environment for your child. Additionally, any claims of domestic abuse or violence needs to be reported, as well as any reports of falsification.
