FAQ

CAN I ATTEND PAS WITH MY PARTNER?

No.

Separating and/or divorcing parents are not permitted to attend the same session and there are no exceptions. Ex-partners must register in different sessions (you will be asked for your partner’s name when registering). This is to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants.

Do I have to take both nights in the same week?

It is preferred that you would take both nights in the same week, however, we are aware that this may not be possible at times. The information presented in the Monday evening sessions is considered to be Part 1 so it is highly recommended that you take it before taking Thursday evening session. You do not need to take them in the same week.

Do I need to bring anything to the course?

You will be provided with a participant manual when you arrive. Please bring a pen. 

What do I get after I complete the course?

The entire six-hour course must be attended to in order to receive a Certificate. This Certificate is required as proof of attendance when you go to file at the Courthouse. Please hold on to your Certificate as if it gets lost, there is a fee for a replacement certificate.

Can I bring a support person?

Yes, but the support person must also register or they will not be permitted to attend the course.  Please note that children are not allowed at the course.

What’s the difference between Parenting After Separation and Parenting After Separation for Families in High Conflict?

High Conflict Parenting After Separation is designed for parents in high conflict situations. Focus is on safety issues and how to minimize conflict between parents.
