Delaware Divorce Mediation, Counseling and Parenting Classes
Delaware Divorce Mediation:
The Delaware Family court includes mediation/arbitration units. The Court of Common Pleas Mediation Program offers an alternative to litigation for criminal, civil, disputed restitution and community cases. When the divorce is contested, the court may delay the action for 60 days so the spouses can seek mediation. The court may also order a mediation conference. [Delaware Code Annotated; Title 13 Chapter 15 1507 and 1517]
Delaware Marriage Counseling:
During the 60-day stay, the parties may also seek counseling.
Delaware Parenting Class:
The court mandates that parents attend a certified parenting education course in cases where there are children under 18. The course runs six to eight hours, and it is designed to help the parties cope with divorce. When domestic violence is an issue, the court may order additional courses.
