Parenting Coordination is a multi-pronged approach to resolving child-related disputes outside of court. It employs coaching, education, mediation - and with the agreement of both parties, arbitration - to overcome impasses.
By learning and using new tools to manage disagreements, you keep the focus where it belongs - on the well-being of your child. Simultaneously, you eliminate the high emotional and financial costs of returning to court to litigate relatively minor conflicts.
A Parenting Coordinator provides guidance, resources and strategies to divorced or never-married co-parents aimed at improving their communication concerning their children. I work with you to implement or tweak your parenting plan in ways that anticipate challenges, emphasize smooth transitions, and reduce opportunities for conflict.
Common hot-button topics include vacation and holiday planning, religious observance, school choice, afterschool activities, and new partners.
