Parenting Coordination

Parenting coordination is designed to help divorced or unmarried parents work cooperatively to make decision affecting their children. Parenting coordination is appropriate for high-conflict divorce cases. It is also appropriate for any case where there is a need or concern for resolving parenting disputes in a child-focused manner without litigation.

The role of the parenting coordinator is to assist parents with implementing their parenting plan in a way that shields their children from parent conflicts and helps both parents meet their children’s needs. Issues that may be addressed in parenting coordination include confirming contact schedules, holidays, extracurricular activities, special needs, vacations, school related issues, co-parenting communication and contact with relatives. Parenting coordinators may not substantially or permanently change time-sharing arrangements.

Parenting coordination is initiated by a court-order or stipulated agreement between parents.  If you or your attorney needs a copy of an acceptable order, our office can provide one to you.
Your first appointment is an individual intake session. During this session, you will have an opportunity to discuss your questions, concerns and goals for parenting coordination with your parenting coordinator. Subsequent appointments will be held jointly with your co-parent or individually depending on the issues in your case. Parenting coordination is not therapy and therefore is not covered by insurance benefits. Our office can provide you with a fee schedule.
