Post-Divorce Parenting Coordination

Parenting coordination provides a safe setting in which to resolve conflicts concerning the children without involving the children in the conflicts.

As  a divorced parent, you may need help addressing the many challenges that arise after a divorce. Consider working with a parenting coordinator so that you and your spouse can make healthy decisions about your children, communicate more effectively, minimize child-related disagreements, and avoid going to court.

Build Communication, Cooperation & Trust

An important long-term goal is to improve communication and raise the level of cooperation and trust between parents. This is crucial, because hostility between parents can lead to emotional dysfunction and deterioration in the mental health of children in divorced families.

For many parents, separation and divorce is a time when communication difficulties are heightened. Decision-making about important or routine matters concerning your children is fraught with tension and increases the chance for conflict.

Yet you must continue to make many such decisions. Without an effective way to deal with conflict, you may end up in and out of court, exhausting yourselves and your bank accounts and causing your children unintentional pain.

Create the Right Plans With Your Co-Parent

In my role as a parenting coordinator, I can assist you in creating appropriate parenting plans, building functional and enduring parenting relationships, and addressing ongoing parenting disputes. We can work through particularly difficult issues where you are “stuck,” and examine the needs of the whole family, especially your children’s.
