Parenting Coordination

In highly contested divorce and custody cases, the court may choose to appoint or the parties may agree upon the appointment of a parent coordinator. This individual may be an attorney or a mental health professional. The coordinator will meet with parents for a time period following the divorce or even during the divorce, in an effort to assist in resolving parenting issues and disputes that may arise, working through the problems and achieving a constructive resolution.

This process is intended to ease the transition into co-parenting and the new dynamics of the divorce decree. It is court-ordered, and the parents must pay for the service. However, it has been found to minimize arguing between the parents, as well as the amount of time that is spent in court and with attorneys following the final decree — saving both parties money in the long run.
