Parenting Coordinator Services in New Albany

In a family law case, often there are times when the parties need someone to help them co-parent, to resolve time sensitive issues, and to help the parties avoid court, if necessary. A parenting coordinator can serve that role.

The parenting coordinator is a relatively new development in family law. The idea is that the parties agree that an experienced lawyer or other professional can help the parties work through issues without tying up the courts or waiting a long period for a court date.

If you’re co-parenting arrangements and are experiencing issues with the other parent of your child or children, we invite you to call us today to schedule a consultation to learn more about your parenting coordination options.

Why Choose a New Albany Parenting Coordinator?

Navigating co-parenting arrangements can be challenging. As experienced parenting coordinator, firm attorney Derrick Wilson brings a deep understanding of family dynamics and the legal system to help parents in New Albany and the surrounding communities to work through their differences.  He helps parents reduce conflict and provides a path forward that supports the well-being of the children involved.

What Does Parenting Coordination in Indiana Involve?

The parties determine how the process works and what issues the parenting coordinator may resolve. The parties then work directly with the coordinator to resolve issues when they arise. If the parties can’t resolve the issues by mediation or negotiation, the parenting coordinator often has the authority to issue binding recommendations, subject to the objections of either party’s counsel.

This process encourages the parties to work out their problems promptly, privately, and fairly. Litigation is still an option but is not the sole option.

How Does the Parenting Coordination Process Start?

The process typically begins with a court order or an agreement between both parents to engage a parenting coordinator. Following this, we hold an initial meeting to understand the issues at hand, set out communication protocols, and start working towards resolutions.

Can a Parenting Coordinator Make Decisions for Us?

While we can offer guidance and make recommendations, our main role is to assist parents in reaching agreements on parenting matters. In situations where agreements can’t be reached, we may have the authority, depending on our appointment terms, to make recommendations, which can then be reviewed by the court.
