Education for Divorcing Parents

If the parties to a divorce have any minor children, they must attend an approved educational program on the effects of divorce on children. No divorce judgment will be granted unless satisfactory proof of completion is provided to the court.

In Door County, such programs are offered by Bay Counseling Clinic, LLP 920-743-4428 and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, 888-385-NWTC, reference “The Successful Divorce.” A parent is not required to attend a program in Door County. Every county in Wisconsin, and most states, offer similar programs.

​Parents who attended a program for a prior divorce case, must still attend because the issues for each child and set of parents varies.
