In Spokane County Superior Court, parents involved in litigation pertaining to their children (dissolution of marriage and paternity/parentage actions) are required to attend a parenting seminar.
The seminar costs about $20 and is offered by more than one agency with hours to accommodate working parents. The length of the seminar is approximately three hours.
After attending the seminar, the agency will forward certification to the court file. Before signing final orders, the Commissioners and Judges routinely check the court file to make sure both parties attended the seminar.
