Mandatory Parenting Programme

Mandatory Parenting Programme

The Mandatory Parenting Programme is a consultation session for parents with minor children before they file for divorce. It is designed to encourage divorcing couples make informed decisions that prioritise the well-being of children. 
 
This is a two-hour session by counsellors from Divorce Support Specialist Agencies (DSSAs). All parents with children below 14 years old are required under the Women’s Charter Section 94A to attend this programme if they do not have a signed formal agreement pertaining to a parenting plan and all other divorce matters. 
 
The consultation aims to help parents understand: 
  • the financial challenges of divorce 
  • how divorce impacts living arrangements 
  • child custody and access 
  • the importance of co-parenting and having a parenting plan 
Please log in with your SingPass​ to check your eligibility and apply for the Mandatory Parenting Programme. MSF will process your application online and a DSSA counsellor will contact you to schedule an appointment. This programme is provided free to all eligible parents with minor children before they file for divorce.
