Divorce cases with children
Please recall that the local family law rules require parents in divorce cases to contact the Domestic Relations Counseling Bureau and sign up for two co-parenting classes. Judges in both Circuit and Superior Courts have noticed a number of cases where the parents have not completed the classes but have submitted a settlement agreement and decree. Each judge handles this situation differently, but practitioners should remember to advise their clients to complete the classes as soon as possible. Thank you! [Posted May 13, 2016]
