In the state of Indiana, it is law for you to go to a parenting class before a judge will sign your divorce decree if you have children. In fact you can't even get a hearing if you have not completed the class. You are supposed to complete the class within 30 days of filing for divorce. It does not need to be ordered by a judge since it is already a law.

I don't think there is any "adoption" classes however, I would expect that you'd have to attend a parenting class. It might also depend on your state so ask an adoption agency
If there was a legal divorce and division of marital property, the custody of the child(ren) MUST have been addressed in the divorce action. Check your divorce papers carefully. If it somehow happened that it was not addressed at the time of divorce, and you do not wish the father to have custody, you can go back to court and re-open the child custody portion of divorce proceedings, and a judge will make a determination as to who is the more 'fit' parent for primary custody.As long as the parenting plan is filed, yes. But, there are far more issues to be addressed if the father is not married to the mother. see link
Under normal circumstances, no (the court can order it under specific circumstances). But every state should require it.
Yes. In the United States you cannot force a spouse to stay married to you. Every state has no-fault divorce and even if you do not co-operate the divorce will happen eventually. It will take longer and be more costly. You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation, explain your options and help you understand what issues you need covered by a divorce agreement. If you have children you will also need a parenting plan.
Sometimes a judge may request this so the couple is sure they want the divorce, but generally it would be wise for the couple to make sure they want a divorce (especially if there are children) by going to marriage counseling. Divorce is not only traumatic for the two spouses, but often children blame themselves when the parents get a divorce. So unless a judge has requested this, then no, there is no real law that can force you to take marriage classes.

Three way in which poor parenting practices may affect the behaviour of adolescents.
It depends on how long you were there and where husband is. There is a Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act that all states have adopted and the state where the child is for six months will usually have jurisdiction over the custody. However, you can't just take the kids and hide them for six months for this to work. Also, the parents can agree on a parenting plan in either state. With regard to the divorce, the state where the couple lives will usually have jurisdiction. You cannot file for divorce in a state that neither husband nor wife reside in. However, if you were both in Oregon and then you left Oregon and moved to Alaska and husband still lives in Oregon, yes, Oregon would be the most appropriate place to get divorced.
