AACP is pleased to share information with you about Parenting Coordination, a new dispute resolution method for high conflict parenting matters that is being launched in Australia by Dr Anne Purcell and Cassandra Pullos of Pullos Lawyers. Parenting Coordination has been entrenched in the US and Canadian family law systems for at least the last 20 years. Parenting Coordinators are neutral actors who work with high conflict parents in a non-confidential and reportable way to implement parenting orders handed down by a Judge or to fulfil a previously agreed upon parenting plan.
The primary purpose of Parenting Coordination is to reduce the number of returns to the litigation process for contravention and other implementation issues. It also has an educative role in educating and coaching high conflict parents in the effects of conflict on their children and how to better communicate with lower conflict levels.
Parenting Coordination Australia is offering a Parenting Coordination (PC) training program in Sydney (8 – 10 August 2019) and Brisbane (17 – 19 October 2019). The 3-day course will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to engage in one of Family Law’s fastest growing disciplines. Course rates for the full, 3-day training is $2,850
