Oklahoma law now requires all parents of minor children to attend a Co-Parenting class before a Divorce is granted. Parents should attend the class either before a temporary order is entered, or within forty-five days after a temporary order is entered by the judge in their case, and their certificate must be filed with the court. The class shall focus on the impact of divorce upon children, and the parties can attend separately or together. The full text of the law is found at 43 O.S. 107.2: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=71819
The program must also include education about domestic violence and ways to reduce parental conflict. Oklahoma county requires that this class be attended in person rather than online. All courts are permitted to set their own compliance requirements. This law is mandatory for all divorcing parents, and may also be required in the court's discretion for parents with Paternity cases. Waivers may be granted only in special circumstances with good cause established to the court. A course that complies with this requirement is Co-Parenting for Resilience, offered by the OSU Extension Office.

In my opinion, this is a good law. Very often during the period of divorce, parents begin to pay less attention to children and their upbringing. Not many parents think about how their children feel, how they experience. For a child, divorce can be a trauma that will be with him for the rest of his life.
