expand  What is Parent Coordination?
Parent Coordination gives both parents and children a chance to be heard in a child-focused, non-confidential and non-neutral process. Separated parents meeting individually with the Parent Coordinator are encouraged to resolve the conflicts about their children.  The goal of the process is to minimize the children’s exposure to adult conflict and to reduce the risk of danger to all family members. Parent Coordinators also assist parents and children to connect with other resources in the community for help and support.
