Denmark makes it harder for parents to divorce: Launches mandatory course and reflection time for parents to consider the impact on children

Denmark will now require parents seeking a divorce to undergo a mandatory online course and wait three months before separating.

According to The Christian Post: “The Danish Parliament agreed in March to implement a mandatory ‘reflection period’ of three months and require parents who have children 18 years old and younger to take an online course before a divorce can be finalized.”

The course, called ‘Co-operation After Divorce’ is designed to help couples reflect on the ramifications of divorce, especially from the perspective of their children.

Parents who fail to complete the course within the three-month waiting period will not have their request finalized and will legally remain married.
