Solving Problems With Parent Coordination
Sometimes the dynamic between two parents is such that reaching cooperative agreements regarding their children is difficult. In these cases, parents sometimes agree to use a parent coordinator, special master or limited-scope arbiter when a quick decision is needed. The role of the parent coordinator is to learn each parent’s position and interests, engage in follow-up investigation, as necessary, and, ultimately, issue a written decision to resolve the dispute.
How A Parent Coordinator Can Help
A parent coordinator serves in many ways, including:
- Assisting you in making decisions about the custody of your children
- Acting as a neutral mediator
- Identifying and addressing problems
- Working in the best interest of your children
Utilizing a parent coordinator will allow you to settle your differences with the other parent without litigation. This will likely make your pre-divorce or post-divorce life easier, less stressful and less costly.
Innovative Mediation Assistance
A parent coordinator may only become involved by agreement of both the parents or through appointment by the family court. The issues that are subject to this decision-making process are determined in advance of participation in the process.

A Neutral Parent Coordinator Can Help You Resolve Disputes
