Family law: Parenting coordinators can help with parenting plans

For divorced parents who have parenting plans in place, but need some extra help, parenting coordination may be an option. Parent coordinators have gained popularity under family law in British Columbia over the last few years. A parent coordinator's main function is to assist parents to implement their parenting plans and to help resolve contentious issues that might arise from those plans. 

Parent coordinators help parents to iron out issues for the long haul. They aren't there to help fix things temporarily or for the interim. They are there to help with final parenting plans whether they're court-ordered after trial or the result of a divorce agreement.

There are different types of parenting coordinators. Some can help in certain areas and have training in various modalities like psychology, law and childhood development. The choice of a parent coordinator depends on the types of issues a family is having and why they're having them. A coordinator cannot help with things concerning child support, spousal support, division of property or debt.  

A British Columbia family law lawyer may be able to assist his client with things that pertain to divorce issues like how to iron out problems concerning children other than support or custody as per a parenting plan. He or she may be able to help a client to find a parenting coordinator or others who can offer assistance. A lawyer may also act as a parenting coordinator. There are always tools at hand to help parents to do what is in the best interests of their children.
