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 class also covers some of the basic steps in the legal process in the Deschutes County Circuit Court.
