In Jacksonville, Florida and in all counties in Florida, if children are an issue in a divorce case, the courts will require that the parents attend and complete a parenting course or divorce class. In Jacksonville, Florida, the class is called Children First In Divorce. The purpose of the class is to teach the parties how to put their emotional beliefs aside and to focus on helping the children get through this very difficult process. The Hope Haven Children’s Clinic offers the class to those located in the Fourth Judicial Circuit which encompasses Duval, Clay & Nassau Counties in Florida. All states require some form of children first in divorce. Please call our firm for advice on how to set up your class and on how to proceed with your divorce.
