Under Missouri law, parents going through a divorce, legal separation, modification, or paternity case must attend a parent education class. Many of the local circuit courts, including St. Louis County, provide or assist parties in finding a class that satisfies the requirement. The class teaches parents about the transition their family will be undergoing during and after the divorce and how that transition will affect the children.
Some parents find it helpful to hire an attorney to help them keep their requirements on track, including the parenting classes. At Bardol Law Firm, LLC, we are diligent in making sure our clients have met all court requirements, have attended all mandatory classes and sessions, and have filed all necessary paperwork during the course of their case. Staying on top of the details can be the difference between a good and bad outcome in court.
