Parent Coordination

Parent coordination is most often called for when parties end up going back to court repeatedly over sometimes seemingly small or insignificant issues. In many cases, it is not the issues that are at the root of the problem, but simply a relationship that has soured to point where is it characterized by continual power struggles and the complete inability to carry on normal conversations. Such situations often need a calm, objective third party – a person to coordinate separate parenting needs and goals.

Parent Coordination

All parents tend to have some level of continued tension at least for a short period after the divorce. Some parents experience long term high levels of conflict and never quite seem to get to a point where they can have calm business-like discussions about the children. In cases like these, when there exists continued high conflict, a parent coordinator may be necessary. Parent coordinators are either ordered by the courts because the parties are continually back before the judge or contracted privately between parties.

The parent coordinator serves as a trained third party neutral who facilitates communication and decision making about the children when parents are unable to do so on their own. In times of an ongoing storm of strife and tension, the parent coordinator can serve as a guide and trusted third party who will help you navigate the dark and troubled waters of post-divorce conflict.
