PARENTING SEMINARS

Approved Parenting Seminars

Skagit County requires all persons involved in a parenting plan (custody/visitation) action to participate in an approved parenting seminar within 90 days after the service of a petition starting the legal proceedings (See SCLSPR 94.01.1).  There are fees associated with the seminars.  Some providers offer reduced fees or grants.  Contact the provider directly for information on fees.  The court can enter sanctions or can choose not to enter a final parenting plan or custody order if the parties have not completed the approved seminar.  This requirement may be waived by the court for good cause. 

Your early participation in any one of these programs may decrease the stress for you and your child or children and may speed up the resolution of your legal proceeding.  The seminars are designed to help parents learn about the issues children deal with when their parents separate.  Parents generally report having learned valuable information which assists them in helping their children deal with the separation.
