1177694_lollypop.jpgFlorida requires parents going through a divorce or paternity case to keep their children in the front of the issues. North Florida courts require that parents complete a course sponsored by the Department of Children and Families that teaches parents about issues regarding a split home and the effects it may have on the children. The course in Jacksonville Florida is called, “Children First in Divorce.”

In Jacksonville, Florida the course is a requirement in every divorce and paternity case to help parents understand issues that may arise with the children as parents split or establish a time-sharing plan. Like it or not, separate households can cause the children difficulties and understanding how to address those issues can be helpful.
