I have heard that there is an Oregon parenting class required during a divorce. What is this about?

Oregon requires that both you and your spouse to complete a parenting class early in the divorce process. The typical class lasts four hours and covers topics including ways that parents can help their children adjust to divorce and how to make shared parenting time better for the children. The cost and length of the class vary by county. The court will not allow your divorce to become final until both parents have completed the class and filed the appropriate certificates with the court.
