Level 1 foundational co-parenting class focusing on families in transition. Parents learn skills to avoid common mistakes in an effort to work together with their co-parent for the sake of the children.

Target: Divorcing, separating, never married parents or for parents seeking a modification.



Level 2 skills-based co-parenting class for potentially high-conflict families. These life skills teach parents how to manage emotions in order to protect their children during transition and moving forward.

Target: Divorcing, separating or never married parents in conflict or contested cases.


Comprehensive Course Outline

Twelfth Judicial District: Otero County and Lincoln County


Notice: If an attorney or litigant has concerns specific to the Twelfth District and their determination of the need for parenting / co-parenting education (in-person or online), they have an opportunity to bring that concern to their judge, who makes the final determination in the form of a Court order. Any request to deviate from the Court's order with respect to cases in Family Court Services would need to be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Family Court Services within the Twelfth District for approval prior to taking any online parent education class.
