Kansas Divorce Mediation, Counseling and Parenting Classes
Kansas Divorce Mediation:
The court may require mediation, unless mediation would be inappropriate in the particular case.
A mandatory 60-day delay from the time the petition is filed until a final Decree of Divorce may be granted prevails unless an emergency prevails.
Kansas Marriage Counseling:
During the divorce process, the court may order that the spouses or their children be interviewed by a psychiatrist, licensed psychologist or other family counselor, approved by the court, to determine the best interests of the children regarding legal custody, residency, visitation or parenting time. If a counselor so recommends, the court may order the parties and any of the children to obtain counseling. Neither party shall be required to obtain counseling if the party objects thereto because the counseling conflicts with sincerely held religious tenets and practices to which any party is adherent. [Kansas Statutes; Chapter 60, Article 16, Subject: 1608 and 1617].
Kansas Parenting Class:
Parents may be required to attend parent education classes, if they are unable to come to an agreement concerning parental responsibilities. [Kansas Statutes Annotated; 60-16-1626].
