Parenting coordination provides a child-focused alternative dispute resolution process. A Parenting Coordinator assists the parents in creating or implementing a parenting plan by facilitating the resolution of disputes between the parents and by providing education, making recommendations, thus helping the parents to resolve their differences outside of the court system.
More than one million children each year are affected by divorce and family separation. Many of those children will be raised in families where parents remain in conflict. It is crucial for those parents to understand that their ongoing custody battles will create an unhealthy environment for their children. Their children’s entire world becomes disrupted, their support system becomes weakened or destroyed, and the children may become anywhere from vulnerable to incapacitated.
If parents can learn to manage their parenting by themselves, engage in acceptable communication with their co-parents, it will not only tremendously benefit their children, but will also help these parents to become healthy and happy adults and move forward with their lives..
Every parent I know wants their children to be successful. They want them to be happy, independent and end up in loving relationships as adults. What high conflict parents need to know is that it is not the divorce by itself that creates pathology and sickness with children, but rather it is the constant conflict that causes irreparable harm.
As a parent coordinator I will help divorced families or families in transition to reduce parental conflict, minimize stress for children, and encourage families, whenever possible, to resolve their own parenting issues without litigation. I will help and ensure that the children are shielded from parental conflict, loyalty binds and any other unnecessary stress. I will assist you to make informed decisions to promote the best interests of your children. I will help you maintain a healthy co-parenting relationship by reducing parental conflict.
As a Parenting Coordinator qualified by the Family Courts of NJ since 2009, I am well positioned to help you resolve your conflicts and to raise your children in a healthier environment that is not detrimental to their development and well-being.
