Q: I am wondering if my ex and I would benefit from having a parenting coordinator.

A: To determine if a parenting coordinator is the right option for you, ask these 2 questions:


Do you already have a parenting plan or court order about parenting in place?


And Do you and your ex frequently argue about parenting decisions in a way that is negatively impacting your children?


If you answered yes to both questions, a parenting coordinator may be a good choice for your family. Parenting Coordinators are usually dispute resolution professionals, sometimes social workers, or psychologists, and sometimes lawyers. The right parenting coordinator can be a game-changer for a co-parenting relationship as it can really help to have a neutral third party involved with your family.
