In Arizona, whenever someone files a Domestic Relations matter involving children (Petition for Dissolution, Paternity, etc.) both parties are required to attend a Parent Education class. In Pinal County, Local Rule requires that parties attend the class in person. Our classes are interactive; most participants discover they enjoy the class and learn something new from the instructor or other parents.
ARS 25-352 says “In an action … in which a party has requested that the court determine custody, specific parenting time or child support, the court shall order the parties to complete an educational program as prescribed by this article.”
