Divorce Orientation and Education

caption.bmp
If you file for divorce in Utah and have children under age 18, you and your spouse must attend both the Divorce Orientation and Divorce Education classes. If you file for divorce and do not have children, there are no education requirements that you must fulfill.

The Divorce Orientation class costs $20. Topics include:
(a) options available as alternatives to divorce;
(b) resources available from courts and administrative agencies for resolving custody and support issues without filing for divorce; and
(c) a discussion of post-divorce resources.

The Divorce Education class costs $35. Topics include:
(a) how parents can support their childrens' emotional well-being during the divorce process;
(b) how parents can cooperate with each other in co-parenting or "parallel parenting" their children; and
(c) how parents can encourage meaningful relationships with both parents, so long as it is safe to do so.

If you cannot attend these classes, you may be permitted to watch them on video. For information on when you may be permitted to view the class recordings instead of attending in person, visit the Divorce Orientation and Education page.

When filing out your divorce paperwork using the Online Court Assistance Program, you will be asked if you would like to waive the education requirement. The court may grant this if good cause exists.

Once you have completed the education requirements, you will receive a certificate of completion, which you must file with the court.

To find out when the next classes will be offered, visit the Divorce Orientation and Education page.

The Library Road Show

Thanks to a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grant administered by the Utah State Library, two members of the law library staff are headed to Southeastern Utah to offer classes and information about the Utah State Law Library and the Utah State Courts to public librarians and residents.

On Monday, May 11, we'll be in Price, offering sessions to both public librarians and residents of Price and surrounding areas. On May 13 and 14, we'll be in Moab, offering similar sessions.

Our goal is to familiarize Utahns statewide about the resources available on the Courts' website, especially the resources available for people who are representing themselves in court. We're also hoping to encourage more people outside of Salt Lake to call or email the law library for help with their legal reference questions.

If you'd like more information about our outreach efforts throughout the state, contact us at 801-238-7990 or at library@email.utcourts.gov.
