Finalizing your divorce is the beginning of a new phase of life for couples who share children. Even though you no longer are married to your spouse, the two of you embark on the important job of co-parenting. This can be difficult at times, especially when there is a major life event, decision to make, or change in schedule. Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation is a leading Parenting Consultant in the Burnsville, MN area, who can help you and your ex-spouse solve the issues that come up after your divorce is final and you need to settle issues relating to co-parenting. This can be an extremely valuable and effective tool to minimize and solve conflict and find solutions to day to day problems that come up. Parenting Consulting is a service that goes hand-in-hand with divorce mediation and is essential to helping divorcing parents remain focused on the long-term health and well-being of their children who are affected by their decision to get divorced.

Parenting Consultant Helps Resolve Conflict

A parenting consultant can help solve a wide variety of issues that are not covered by your parenting agreement, including interpreting, clarifying, and enforcing your court orders and parenting plan. The idea of a Parenting Consulting was created by a number of Minnesota-based consultants working in the arena of Minnesota family dispute. Parenting consulting is an aspect of mediated divorce that responds to issues such as child custody, parenting time school concerns, and approaches to the children’s health care issues more quickly and em-pathetically than the traditional court system is able to. It is also almost always significantly less expensive and takes less time than seeking the court’s assistance. A parenting plan which may be agreed upon during a divorce settlement cannot possibly cover every possible decision or issue that will arise in the life of your children. So, when an issue comes up that you need help resolving, a Parenting Consultant can help.

You almost certainly understand that divorce can be harder on children than on the adults affected by it. In addition to the issues between you and your spouse, you are likely highly conscious of the impact the divorce is having on your children. Family mediation can help you find solutions with less conflict that a court battle, allowing you to show your children that you and your spouse can work together.

Co-Parenting Successfully After Divorce

AMS Mediation seeks to help you and your divorcing spouse resolve differences, and do so with the optimal parenting procedures in mind. Children are more sensitive to parental conflict and may also have a harder time understanding the causes of their parents’ problems. When you work with AMS Mediation, parental conflict can be reduced or even eliminated.
