You can use a divorce mediator from the get-go to first develop a workable agreement and minimize conflict from the start. You can set out which parent has responsibility for different days, different activities. Find the areas where you agree- school, religion, after-school activities, and put those down on paper. And if there are areas where you don’t agree, the mediator will help you come to a compromise solution.
If you have a parenting plan in place that is not working and you are constantly arguing with your ex-spouse, for the sake of your children, you need to find a better way. You can use a Parent Coordinator. Even though the Courts recently announced the end of their Parent Coordinator Pilot Program, Parent Coordinators are not a thing of the past - it means only that the pilot program has
officially ended. Westfield Mediation, LLC offers Parent Coordination services. Through parent coordination, mediators will help you create a plan that works for your family.
Is your only choice to continue to file and answer motions about every little thing, because it is just impossible to get your co-parent to change? No. By using a Parent Coordinator, co-parents can improve their communication, decrease their conflict, and cause less stress for their children. So, you can end the expensive and time-consuming cycle of post-divorce motions. Don’t let your child be a statistic in a future study about children with problems coming from high-conflict post-divorce families. You can change your and your children’s future today.
