We are doing mutual agreement divorce, and i have classes at the college till the end of May three nights a week (including the days for the parenting classes), so i cannot attend the parenting classes.
Some courts will allow you to file if you have proof of enrollment, however your divorce will not be finalized until the classes are completed. Some court will exempt you from taking the classes for good cause on motion, but the reasons must be compelling to the court. Call the clerk at the court and ask.
This is not legal advice and is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. You should speak to an attorney for further information.
You can file and have 30 days from the service of the complaint to register. It must be completed before your divorce judgment enters unless you obtain a waiver from the court.
You could look at some classes that are a bit outside of your area to give you more flexibility with the timing. I know there are many programs that offer Saturday classes, for example I see a few in Attleboro and Dartmouth with Saturday classes coming up.
