Parenting Coordination

Frantz Ward serves as a professionally trained parenting coordinator that works with families (post-divorce) to implement their parenting plans, which minimizes conflict and restores relationships. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, the parenting coordinator has authority to make decisions as defined by the court order. The parenting coordinator utilizes tools such as education, case management, coaching, and decision-making to help parents co-parent without court involvement. As such, we are a valuable asset to manage conflict while a family is in transition.
