The Nuts & Bolts of Parenting Coordinators

Illinois’ new Parenting Coordinator Statute (Ill. Sup. Ct. Rule 909(b)) was designed to help uncooperative parents make parenting decisions, communicate effectively, comply with parenting agreements, and protect the children from parental conflicts; however, the rule has resulted in many counties adding their own local rules regarding coordination, which has been established and practiced in Cook County.

Don’t miss this in-depth discussion on how parenting coordination works, how practitioners can utilize parenting coordinators for their case, and how parenting coordinators differ from Guardian ad Litems. Additional topics include: how mental health practitioners (who serve as parenting coordinators) see their role; how judges use the recommendations of parenting coordinators; how the parenting coordinator is used in the courtroom; and how practitioners and the judiciary view the role of the parenting coordinator.
