Families in Transition

Families in Transition is a class for parents of minor children who are going through a divorce, separation, change of custody, legitimization, or some other change in family structure. It focuses on co-parenting issues such as children's developmental levels and appropriate behaviors; stages of grief; the statistical facts about divorce; finances; blended families; what children need to do to adjust to family change; telling the children; resources, including books for children and adults; and other services for families.

Anyone may attend this class, although it is court mandated for both parents of children 18 or under seeking divorce. The fee for the weekday seminar (M-F) is $30 per person. The fee for the Saturday seminar is $40. In order to get a certificate of completion (which the court requires), you must have your Civil Action Number, which is on the legal papers. Classes are held five to six times a month, with locations in Bibb and Houston counties. You must call 478-745-2811 to register.
