In Florida, all divorcing couples with children must create a Parenting Plan, outlining how they intend to co-parent after their divorce. Florida law maintains a strong public policy to keep both parents in frequent and continuing contact with their children after divorce. Parenting issues are divided into three categories: parental responsibility, time sharing and support.
Often times, parents have difficulty adjusting to the concept of co-parenting after they divorce or during the divorce proceedings. They feel they simply cannot get the assistance they need to resolve their time-sharing issues. When this occurs, it is helpful to enlist the services of a professional who is highly trained in conflict resolution and child development.
The purpose of parenting coordination is to provide a child-focused resolution process that assists parents in creating or implementing a parenting plan. This is done through helping the parents their resolve disputes by providing education, making recommendations, and with the prior approval of the parents and the court, making limited decisions within the scope of the court’s order of referral.
A Parenting Coordinator can be used during a divorce proceeding to help couples put together a suitable parenting plan. A Parenting Coordinator can also be used when the divorce is final and the couple finds themselves having a great deal of difficulty sticking with the terms of the court ordered time-sharing plan.
If you find you are experiencing ongoing difficulty in co-parenting after a divorce or in resolving what seem to be continual obstacles to finding a suitable co-parenting plan while seeking your divorce, you may want to consider the services of a PARENTING COORDINATOR.
