Neutral parties -Many kinds of people can be mediators: mental health or business professionals, attorneys; educators; and others. To become certified by the CALIFORNIA Supreme Court, a mediator must meet many requirements.
There are ethical standards for mediators adopted by the CALFORNIA Supreme Court. See the Standards of Professional Conduct in Part II of the CALIFORNIA
A mediator is not there to provide therapy counseling business or legal advice. While mediation is an excellent place to recognize the emotions that may be driving the dispute, the mediator is there as a neutral to help you focus on resolving your conflict.
What Parenting Coordinators Do
Parenting coordinators are specially trained professionals whose work focuses on helping co-parents manage their parenting plans, improve communication, and resolve disputes. The role of a parenting coordinator will vary based on what a family needs and what the court may require.
You are more likely to spend less time in the courtroom.
When your parenting coordinator is there to help by offering guidance or even making decisions when you can't reach one together, you'll spend less time arguing with your co-parent to no end.
When there's less conflict, you are also less likely to make return trips to court. This will also help you save money by not having to spend more on legal fees.
It may help to reduce stress.
A parenting coordinator can help you stop fighting so much by educating you on ways to resolve conflicts promptly. Then, while you will be glad to have stopped fighting so much, your kids will also be happy to have more peace across their two homes.
Your kids may also learn better communication and problem-solving skills.
Parents are the most important role models for their children. When co-parents can communicate with each other and make decisions without conflict, their kids are likely to notice. They may even learn a thing or two about positive communication skills to use themselves.
Parenting coordinators are focused on making the right decisions for your children.
A parenting coordinator will seek to understand what is happening within the family to create conflict. In many cases, this person will meet with both parents separately, possibly the children, to understand what might be building and persisting the conflict. This gives them better insight as they help co-parents make the best decisions moving forward.
You'll have more time to focus on your kids.
While your parenting time is based on your parenting agreement, working with a parenting coordinator can take away some of the stress you used to have when dealing with your co-parent. With less stress about communication or making decisions, you will be able to spend more time focused on your kids.
Once again, here are five reasons to work with a parenting coordinator:
You may spend less time in the courtroom.
It may reduce stress on your family.
It's an opportunity to improve communication skills.
Parenting coordinators will help you to make the right decisions for your children.
