Co-Parenting Course

Overview

You have likely found this course because of a state court-ordered requirement to complete a Parenting Course. This course has been designed to meet all state requirements as defined by law and has been specifically designed to follow the Domestic Relations Office curriculum the courts are looking for.

The Co-Parenting Course is a community based instruction for Parents looking to meet the court-ordered parenting class requirement in the state of Texas who are seeking a divorce according to Texas Family Code 105.009. Our parenting class has been approved and is the same curriculum taught by the El Paso County Domestic Relations Office and the certificate is recognized by the courts. The series of classes are available in both English and Spanish. These classes allow for “give and take” discussions and activities so the material is internalized and practiced in the home.

The Course provides the content intended to meet court, legal, or employer requirements. It also assists parents who need the tools necessary for personal and family relationship growth.

We believe in the quality of our program and guarantee that our certificate of completion will be accepted or your money back. Course prices include enrollment verification letter and certificate of completion. We do not charge additional fees for providing these documents.

The course has been designed to cover very specific issues that both parents face during a divorce or separation. The Co-Parenting Course instruction is done in a classroom setting for face to face discussions. It allows for comments and discussion of areas that may be difficult to role model. This 9-hour educational series helps parents reduce family conflict focusing on the needs of children and parents in the aftermath of separation or divorce. The class hours must be completed for a certificate of completion to be provided. The curriculum addresses seven separate sections which include the following topics:

  • Section One: Understanding your rights and obligations as parents under Texas Public Policy
  • Section Two: Positive Co-Parenting Practices
  • Section Three: Child Development
  • Section Four: Communication Styles with children and the other parent
  • Section Five: Grief experienced by parents and children
  • Section Six: Conflict Resolution: Communication and Problem Solving
  • Section Seven: Anger Management

At course completion, a certificate of completion will be provided to you along with a copy for your records. The certificate can also be sent by email to the party that has required that you complete this Co-Parenting Class and the Domestic Relations Office so they can file it with your court record. We guarantee that the certificate of completion will be accepted. If, for any reason, the certificate is not accepted, we will provide a full refund.
