Parent Education Classes

Most Oregon counties require each parent to complete a parent education class before a final judgment is signed. Taking the class before filing a case and before or during mediation can provide you with important tools to help you settle your case and promote valuable co-parenting skills. See the links for specific class information for the Portland metropolitan area.
