Parent Facilitation: Court ordered or Rule 11 agreement. The facilitator coaches the co-parents in the cooperative parenting process by confronting the actions and non-actions of the co-parents that keep the child in stress. The facilitator has the opportunity to consult with other professionals, make referrals, and follow the case as needed to provide the parents an option to deal with their conflict outside of the court. All of these services are specifically defined by the definition of the order.
A facilitator can write status reports to the court as needed and defined in the order, testify in court and be contacted by other professionals.
Cooperative Parenting Facilitation is the broadest and most involved service that we offer. This level of service is recommended for high conflict cases.
Parent Coordination: Court ordered or Rule 11 agreement. A parent coordinator assists the parties in resolving issues related to parenting, development of a parenting plan and identifying a dispute resolution process.

A Parent Coordinator would be effective in dealing with mid-level conflict cases. However, if the process is not effective, then an additional appointment of a Parenting Facilitator should be considered to deal with some cases.
