Court Required Co-Parenting Classes
Court approved and required co-parenting classes to finalize divorce
In Florida, and many other States in the US, parents of children under the age of 18 must take a co-parenting class if they file for divorce, and it must be completed before the divorce will be finalized by the court system.
The Family Court system, recognizing the value of successful co-parenting for children, require all parents of children under 18 to complete a Department of Children and Families approved class in co-parenting before a divorce can be finalized. This is generally required to be taken within 45 days of filing for divorce. The class is focused on starting shared or co-parenting the best way possible for your children.
Held online through Zoom, the Virtual In-Person Co-Parenting Class (VICPC) teaches you the effects divorce can have on a family, particularly how children can react emotionally and behaviorally to their parents moving apart. We look at some of the strategies and tools you can use to reduce co-parenting conflicts, such as ways to fairly balance financial responsibility for your children, recognize stress indicators in them, and create a healthy dual-home environment.
By focusing on the needs of your children and the importance of keeping them away from co-parent conflicts, you create the best possible outcomes for them, and for each of you as you move into a new phase of your life.
Department of Children and Families approved virtual co-parenting classes.
Required by Florida Family Courts, and fully approved by the DCF, completing the VICPC class results in a Certificate of Completion which ensures your divorce can be finalized, and that you're on your way to establishing a positive and effective co-parenting relationship.

“It was such an amazing experience! I had attended another parenting class in the past before but nothing like this one. Cynthia was so helpful and understanding, and her class was filled with a lot of important information that has made a huge impact in my life as a Mom of two little girls. She has inspired me to become a better Mom!”
