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 how to talk to children and help them adjust to the changes; children's developmental levels and appropriate behaviors; stages of grief; the statistical facts about divorce; finances; the challenges of blended families; 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 and under who are seeking divorce. The fee for the weekday seminar (Monday-Friday) 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 you can find 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.
