Parent Coordination is a child-focused alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process offered as another course of action to the traditional legal process of resolving marital (and post-divorce) conflict. The Parent Coordination process assists parents in reducing the high conflict and power struggles that negatively impact their ability to work together, as well as their ability to sustain meaningful parent-child relationships. It also protects the child from the impact of parental conflict. Parent coordination services are tailored to meet the needs of the specific family and are available through individual and joint sessions
