Co-Parenting and Divorce Class

Help for Divorcing Parents

Divorce can have a devastating effect on children. If parents are unable to work together for the good of the child, he or she can suffer life-long problems.

In 2014, Oklahoma legislators passed HB2249 which requires parents who are divorcing for reasons of incompatibility and who have children under 18 to attend an educational program concerning the impact of divorce on children.

Family Builders Co-Parenting and Divorce meets the requirements for such a program as outlined in the bill.

Program Topics

  • Short-term and long-term effects of divorce on child well-being
  • Effects of family violence on children
  • Child behaviors and emotional states during and after divorce
  • How to respond to the child's needs
  • Communication strategies to reduce conflict
  • Cooperative co-parenting
  • Reconciliation as an optional outcome
  • What to do in cases of child abuse or family violence
