What is Parenting Coordination?

Parenting Coordination (PC) is a professional service that offers a safe, collaborative and child-focused environment to support parents in adhering to orders and agreements.

A parenting coordinator can help you with

  • Ongoing coaching and education in post-separation communication. 
  • Conflict resolution, anger management and self-regulation. 
  • Assisting parents in meeting the requirements of court orders or consent agreements. 
  • Mediating on-going disagreements and facilitating improved capacity for reaching agreements on minor disputes yourselves. 
  • Promote healthy relationships between children and both parents. 
  • Prevent re-litigation due to contraventions. 

A Parenting Coordinator may be appointed by the court, recommended by a family lawyer, or appointed directly by the parents.

A sample copy of Orders is available on request.
