Abstract

The Hennepin County Co-Parent Court Project was a 3-year demonstration project for unmarried co-parents. The goal of the project was to remove barriers to co-parenting in low-income, unmarried parents. The Co-Parent Court Project encompassed a number of services, including educational workshops, individual case management, parenting plans, legal mediation, and, if needed, supports and treatment for domestic violence. There are published articles that highlight the participant outcomes of the Co-Parent Project. This article, however, focuses on the background for why this project was developed, components of this project, and lessons learned from implementation.
