Testimonials

"Excellent presentation. Brought up issues that I was not aware could be a potential problem."

"Great class- I wish I took the class before the divorce. I think this class is not only for divorcing families but for all family members so that parents have a better view on parenting."

"It gave me some different viewpoints and helped me realize some of the "mistakes" I’ve (we've) been making. I actually broke 5 months of no speaking, and dropped restraining orders while i was going through the course."

" I liked the videos from professionals ranging from judges to attorneys. It was helpful to hear their perspective."

" Even though my ex-husband and I have the most ideal divorce (if there is such a thing),and I thought that we were doing everything right for the most part, I learned a lot from this class. Going into with the mindset that it couldn't teach me anything new, found out very quickly that I was wrong. It showed me several areas where both of us co-parents could use improvement. I will be using these tools I learned here for the rest of my life."
