BY ORDER OF HARRIS COUNTY FAMILY DISTRICT COURTS

All parents who are parties in divorce cases with suits affecting the parent-child relationship or motions to modify custody filed on or after May 1, 1997, are ordered to attend an educational seminar prior to appearing in court for final orders. Certificates verifying attendance by both parents at one of the parent education seminars listed shall be filed with the clerk of the court. Parents need not go to the same seminar or attend on the same date. Parents are URGED to make reservations at one of the seminars listed as soon as possible. There is a charge for attending these seminars, which is paid by the client but may be waived in cases of real financial hardship. Nearly all of the surrounding counties also require parenting classes.

NOTE:

  • All Parents who are parties in Divorce with Suit Affecting Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) or motions to modify custody MUST attend a course in a Parent Education Program
  • This Program is not about how to parent, but about what you and your child will experience during a divorce/custody case
  • Parents gain the most benefit when they attend early in the case
  • It is recommended that you and the other parent attend at separate times, not together
  • Some programs waive or reduce fees based on your financial need
