Parenting coordination is a nonlitigation-based dispute resolution process that is court-ordered or agreed on by divorced or separated parents who have an ongoing pattern of high conflict or litigation regarding their children. It is a technique most often utilized by parents who care deeply about their children, but have demonstrated an inability to resolve their child-related disputes through other processes such as court, mediation, initial settlement conferences or custody evaluations. The collaborative nature of parenting coordination is often the change that is needed to stay out of court.
There are many benefits to enlisting the help of a skilled lawyer who understands parenting coordination and knows how to make it work for you and your family. At Collis & Griffor PC, our family law attorneys have over 30 years of collective experience helping good people just like you make it through the difficult process of being a good parent over the course of a divorce.

Speak With a Parenting Coordinator
Although the parenting coordination process will differ from case to case — depending on factors such as court orders and instructions, level of attorney engagement and parental cooperation — a parenting coordinator (PC) will always be appointed and attempt to work with both parents to find a process that works best for the family.
