Once your evaluation is reviewed by your facilitator, your certificate will be emailed to you within three business days.  You can save your certificate to your computer or print it in the event your case returns to court in the future or you can forward it to your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, bring it to the courthouse where you case is pending and they will put it in your court file.

Reviews for Impact Parent Education

"I liked that the course was very relevant and it kept the information flowing without getting monotonous or boring or overwhelming. Lots of common sense! The handbook is chock full of great information." (Sarah L. July of 2016)


Our kids are doing quite well, considering the circumstances. They are both very loved and have so far talked openly about the upcoming divorce.  To make things easier, I need to stay focused on the kids and our future, and stop getting so caught up in the process we're going through.  (Erick J.
