If you are getting a divorce or engaging in a child custody action in West Virginia, you may be told you have to attend a parent education class. There are many different types of parenting classes, but the parent education class a court may order you to take as part of a child custody hearing is unique, according to the West Virginia Legislature.
From a spouse’s infidelity to couples growing apart over the years, marriages end for many reasons. Sometimes, divorce is brought on by an unexpected problem that arises temporarily, such as a very difficult health condition that is eventually addressed. Or, a marriage may fall apart because of long-term issues, such as a partner’s drug or alcohol problem that they refuse to deal with. Problems at work may also cause a marriage to fail, and there are various ways in which work-related difficulties can affect a married couple and someone who is working through the process of divorce.
