It’s A Requirement
Franklin County’s local rules require parents in a divorce, dissolution, or legal separation proceeding to attend Putting the Children First. Typically, parents must complete this parenting seminar within 45 days of filing with the Court. The course can be taken in person or on-line.

Putting the Children First is a two hour parenting seminar focused on helping parents who are ending their marriage. The seminar seeks to provide insight on how divorce, dissolution, or legal separation can impact children and how parents can work to minimize that impact. It is important for parents to keep children out of the middle and work together as much as possible to reduce the stress experienced and witnessed by their children.
