Parenting Coordinator Services in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, & the Greater Phoenix Metro Area. Our Service Offers Efficient & Cost-Effective Resolutions to Parenting Disputes.
Parenting coordinator services provide a channel for maintaining a sense of order and harmony in post-decree cases. With the assistance of the court, two parents agree to appoint a qualified legal professional called a parent coordinator, who helps resolve conflicts and makes recommendations to the court when the two parties cannot agree. Sheldon & Stoutner are proud to offer these services.
The Benefits of Parenting Coordinator Services
Clients who request our parenting coordinator services do not have to wait for an official court hearing to settle parenting disagreements. Instead, they arrange meetings as the need arises and receive decisions much faster than the Court can generate them. This saves the parties a good deal of time and energy, and helps prevent the stress associated with a court hearing. Children benefit immensely from this service, as the parenting coordinator takes their opinion into account, as well.
Disputes resolved through a parenting coordinator may include:
- Selection of a child’s school or doctor
- Vaccinating a child or obtaining other disputed medical treatment for a child
- General enforcement of the parenting plan
- Decisions about extracurricular activities
- Resentment over late pick-ups or drop-offs
- Introducing children to a new partner
- Resolving communication issues between the parents
