Families First


Families First is taught in Dallas, TX at 4210 Junius St., Dallas 75246. The seminar is mandated by the courts and helps parents understand the effects of divorce on their children and promotes positive parenting during this critical time. The program provides divorced or separating parents with minor children information and training on how to parent during a divorce or custody dispute. Simultaneous children’s classes are also held to help the children understand they are not to blame for the breakup of the marriage/relationship. Children who attend must be ages 6-12 years old. Family Compass is licensed to provide this seminar by the national organization.

Families First seminars are offered as a one-time session, the second Saturday of every month. Classes run 8:30am-12:30pm. Registration closes the Thursday prior to the class at noon.
