Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: My husband is incarcerated and we have two children. I am in the process of submitting my petition for a dissolution of marriage and noticed we are required to complete a parenting class. Is there a waiver for a parent that is incarcerated or any other way this class can be completed by him?

Answer: With few exceptions (ARS 25-352), both parents must complete the parenting class. The classes are mandated by the Superior Court, and fall under Conciliation Counseling. This site provides links to Superior Courts throughout Arizona. Please refer to the Superior Court in your county to find information on local Parenting Classes. This link offers a list of Parenting Class organizations within Maricopa County.
