The Parenting Coordination process assists parents in high-conflict custodial disputes using an alternative approach to resolving issues with the focus remaining on the children. A Parenting Coordinator (PC) can be assigned to a case by court order or the parties may voluntarily agree to the use of the Parenting Coordinator by contract. The Parenting Coordinator is a neutral, trained person who works with the parents to resolve their disputes regarding their parenting issues and, in some cases, assist in making decisions for the parents when they cannot agree. A Parenting Coordinator does not represent the children. The Parenting Coordinator provides assistance to the entire family with the goal of reducing the amount of conflict. The Parenting Coordinator does not get legal advice to the parties.
