If you are a party to a dissolution of marriage (divorce) case and have children or are unmarried parents involved in a custody case, you are required to attend a parenting class (see Deschutes County Circuit Court Supplementary Local Court Rule 8.046
). The class tells you about how changing living arrangements and relationships may affect your children and what you can do to help your children.
The Circuit Court for Deschutes County has temporarily
designated the on-line course, Children in Between
, developed by The Center for Divorce Education as the approved parenting class. The designation of Children in Between
will continue until further notice. Please watch this page for updates.
There are many on-line parenting class providers that state they are "approved" in Oregon on their website. They have not been approved by this Court. The only on-line class approved by the Circuit Court of Deschutes County is Children in Between
