The Divorcing Parents Seminar is a four-hour educational program designed to assist parents by offering time-proven information on ways they may effectively help their children cope with divorce or other family discord. The parties in all domestic cases involving minor children must attend the seminar before their cases can be finalized. The seminar is offered each month in Murray and Whitfield counties at a session on a Thursday morning in Dalton; a session on a Saturday morning in Chatsworth; and two, two-hour evening sessions in Dalton. Pre-registration at the Superior Court Clerk's Office in either Murray or Whitfield county is required before the seminar can be attended. Registration by telephone or at a seminar session is not allowed. There is a $40 per person fee charged to offset the expenses of the program. However, anyone who cannot afford to pay the fee may file a written application for fee waiver in the Court Administrator's office 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office is located on the second floor of the Whitfield County Courthouse.
