Virginia Supreme Court 4-hour Co-Parenting Seminar for Custody and Visitation Issues
In addition, we offer an 8-hour Anger Management course, which is facilitated by a certified Court Mediator and is held the last Saturday of each month. While this course is primarily for ages 17 years and older, a 13 to 16 year old can attend along with a parent or guardian.
All of the courses are recognized by the Newport News Juvenile and Family Relations Courts and in many cases the local Circuit Courts, too. All of the teachers are highly qualified, motivated, trained in the various research-based curricula, and have many years of experience working with parents and families. All of the courses are open to Newport News residents and are provided without cost. For more information call 757-369-6807.
