Congratulations! You’ve reached the end of the divorce process, and you’ve got your property settlement and parenting orders sorted. You’ve paid your final legal bills, and you’re ready to move forwards as coparents. For most parents, this is something they can manage.
However, some parents have never been shown how to communicate as a coparent, and the issues and tensions that you experienced during the separation and divorce process continue long after you’ve said goodbye to the Family Court.
It is often the little day to day things that cause the greatest frustration between coparents, such as time and place of changeovers, extra-curricular activities, and swapping time. Your parenting coordinator can help you navigate these disagreements and reduce the possibility of your children being caught up in any conflict.
Exposing children to ongoing conflict, even if covert, can cause lifelong harm for children socially, emotionally, academically, and sometimes physically. Parenting coordination will help both parents move forward with the implementation of their orders in a manner that will benefit both the children and you as coparents. It coaches both parents in appropriate language and communication strategies and will help you both manage tension and frustration moving forwards. It includes the option of email monitoring from time to time until both parents become familiar with the new strategies.
