If you’re going through a divorce or find yourself dealing with matters of child custody, you’ll want to learn more about parenting coordination.
Last year (2016), the Florida State Legislature approved a statute regarding the use of parenting coordination to settle disputes. The purpose of this approach is to ensure that both individuals make decisions based on the best interests of the child.
With the help of parenting coordination, both parents receive education and professional recommendations in regard to resolving conflicts associated with custody and visitation schedules among other details.
As long as the court and parents approve, the parenting coordinator overseeing the case may have the ability to make final decisions.
At our law firm, we understand that many people aren’t familiar with parenting coordination and how it will impact their lives. However, it’s important to learn more, as this form of alternative dispute resolution often comes into play.
If you find yourself faced with parenting coordination, you’ll want to learn more about your role and what you can do to ensure a positive result. While there is nothing more important than the wellbeing of your child, you still want to end up in a situation with which you’re comfortable.
If you’re dealing with any type of parenting schedule or custody dispute, it may be time to give parenting coordination a chance. As you learn more, it becomes easier to understand the process, your legal rights and the steps you can take to put yourself in the right position. Just like any other family law matter, knowledge is power.
