The new parenting coordination rule took effect on March 1, 2019. The new program is designed to help parents resolve child custody disputes without the need for court intervention. Parents should take time to understand what this may mean for them.
How Parenting Coordination Works
In the event of a dispute over child custody, the parenting coordinator guides the parents toward an agreement. If an agreement between the parents cannot be reached, the parenting coordinator will make a recommendation to the court.
Use of a parenting coordinator is NOT appropriate in every case.
Parents in contentious child custody cases may first want to discuss their case with an attorney, before deciding whether a Parenting Coordinator is appropriate for their unique circumstances. Those who have already had a Parenting Coordinator appointed to their case can still seek advice from an attorney to ensure that their rights are protected.
