The Friend of the Court provides a parent education program called FOCUS ON CHILDREN. This program explores some of the dynamics of divorce, separation, co-parenting, and the challenge of raising children in two households. The program is conducted by Family Court Judges, experienced Friend of the Court staff, psychologists, and local practicing attorneys. The FOCUS program lasts for approximately an hour and a half. Sessions are held on the second Wednesday of each month. Meeting times alternate between noon and 6:00 pm. For further information, please call 517-483-6103.
The Friend of the Court will send you written notice by mail of when you are to attend the FOCUS ON CHILDREN program. Attendance is mandatory for all parties, and notification is sent to the Family Court Judge to whom your case is assigned advising that you have attended the program.
