An Inside Look at Parent Coordination in Florida

Divorce can be Painful and Stressful

Parents need to put their differences aside and make decisions that are in the best interest of their children.

Divorce is hands down the most painful and stressful period in anyone’s life. Compounding this stress, divorcing parents are asked to make decisions regarding their future. Decisions with the best interest of their children in mind while amid an adversarial legal battle. Often, divorcing parents need the assistance of a Parent Coordinator. A Parent Coordinator can help design and implement a parenting plan that allows all parties to move forward and build a healthy new life. But what exactly is a Parent Coordinator?

You may be scared to allow a third party into your world at such a devastating time. But a Parent Coordinator can assist with the delicate and often complex issues surrounding child-related disagreements between you and your ex-spouse. This article can alleviate some of your fears and enlighten you on how a parent coordinator can benefit your family.

Parent Coordinators and Divorce Coaching in Florida

To begin, the Parent Coordinator meets with both parents separately to better understand the issues causing conflict.  The transition from parenting in one home to going it alone as a single co-parent can be difficult, confusing, and lonely. A Parent Coordinator can help you manage your brain through this transition. In addition, a Parent Coordinator can guide you toward effective communication with your ex-spouse. Also, the Parent Coordination process educates you on conflict resolution and provides sensible insights into problem-solving skills. Amazingly, by just controlling your side of the conflict, you and your children will reap the benefits of decreased turmoil and peace. During the parent coordinator process, the parents will be guided toward the structuring and implementation of a parenting plan.  When a parenting plan has been completed,  each parent has a clear road map of their days, weeks, months, and years of timesharing with the children.
