What is Parenting Coordination?
Parenting coordination is a child-focused dispute resolution process designed to assist high conflict families in implementing parenting agreements and child arrangements.
The Parenting Coordinator (or ‘PC’) works with the family to resolve disputes efficiently. They do this by educating parents about children’s needs, helping them to reach consensus where possible and, if necessary and with the prior agreement of the parties, making decisions on disputes. The process is designed to minimise the levels of conflict to which the child is exposed and to assist the parents to find new ways of co-parenting their child going forward.
Why become a Parenting Coordinator?
The rapid growth of Parenting Coordination across the United States, Canada and South Africa represents a dramatic development in family dispute resolution. It has seen enthusiastic uptake and is now established as a main-stream option for many struggling families in those countries where it is practiced.
For practitioners working in England and Wales, the introduction of a model of Parenting Coordination tailored to our jurisdiction represents an exciting opportunity to learn new skills and to develop a challenging and remunerative area of business.
Since launching our training programme we have already had enquires from solicitors and clients asking for details of Parenting Coordinators who could help them.
