Parenting After Separation

Family Services of Central Alberta offers counselling as well as various courses that provide support to persons and families who are affected by Separation & Divorce issues.

Parenting After Separation is a 6 hour course mandated by Alberta Justice for separated and/or divorcing parents with children under the age of 16.

Parents are assisted to understand the process and effects of separation and are encouraged to make positive choices about how they will continue to parent their children after separation. Held at the Red Deer Court House, there is no charge to attend, but registration for this course is mandatory.
