Update from Family Court regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Activities

Until further notice, all in-person Parent Seminars are converting to mail-only participation.

Please register as you normally would for the Parent Seminar. If you need a fee waiver, email us at parentseminar@kingcounty.gov before you register.

You will be asked for contact information when you register. Please make sure your information is correct, as you may receive seminar materials via the US Postal Service or email.

Once you have reviewed the materials, you will be required to send an email certifying that you have read the Parent Seminar materials. Please note that if you fail to email the certification that you read the seminar materials, you will not receive a certificate of completion.

When we receive that certification email, you will be issued a certificate of completion. A copy will be emailed to you for your personal records. The original certificate will be filed with King County Superior Court.

If you have questions or concerns, please email them to parentseminar@kingcounty.gov
