Families First Classes


Families First

Families First is taught in Dallas, TX; the program is mandated by the courts and aims to help parents understand the effects of divorce on their children and to promote positive parenting during this critical time. The program provides divorcing 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. Children who attend must be ages 6-12 years old. Family Compass is licensed to provide this seminar by the national organization, Families First, Inc.

Families First seminars are offered as a one time session, offered the second Saturday of every month. Classes begin at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. Registration closes the Thursday prior to the class at noon. Registrations are not accepted after this deadline. Cost per class is $75 per adult and $25 per child. No refunds or credits for non-attendance. No exceptions.
