What if a parent does not attend the class as ordered?

State law provides that the court cannot grant the request of a parent who does not attend the class.  For example, if you are the parent seeking a divorce, you must attend the class in order to obtain your divorce decree.  If the other parent does not attend, the divorce may still be granted.  However, if the other parent later requests a new or modified order from the court, that parent must first attend the class.  In some instances the court may hold a party in contempt of court or impose other sanctions for refusal to take the class.
