What is a Parenting Coordination?
Co-parenting is hard and life with children is ever changing. Parenting Coordination helps parents who are separated and divorced implement a parenting plan, where parenting time and decision making have already been decided.
Parenting Capacity Assessments is a service provided by LFCC’s new division, Navigating Onward (NavOn).
What is the process?
A parenting coordinator may help with time sharing arrangements during holidays and summer, travel, facilitating exchanges, sorting out extra-curricular activities, school-related decisions, or monitoring compliance with a parenting plan. When parents cannot come to a resolution, the parenting coordinator will make a recommendation for the parents to follow.
Parenting coordinators have specialized training and hold children at the centre of their work. They often serve an education role with parents, providing information about child development or strategies to improve co-parent communication and minimize conflict.
What is the Cost?
A retainer model is used for separation and divorce services. This means that a payment is made in advance and as the work is done, the money in the retainer is used. If there is money left in the retainer at the end of service, this is returned. Parenting Coordination services and pricing can be accessed through LFCC’s newest division, Navigating Onward (NavOn).
