Parenting consulting is the process to use when the conflict is such that you and your co-parent need the decision making authority of a neutral, outside third party. The parenting consultant is given authority by the court to make binding decisions within a specified scope.
Parent coaching is a one-on-one process to help one of the co-parents interact more effectively with their former partner. Parent coaching may be ordered by a parenting consultant when he/she has identified a need for the parent to get help with conflict resolution and/or co-parenting communication.
Children do best when they have safe, stable, and nurturing relationships with at least two parents. Every family is different, so it’s important to find the best options for each child or children with their particular parents, under the current circumstances in your family. A custody evaluation is sometimes the best way to determine those best options. For more information on this service, please reach out to me at 651-882-6234.
