When you’ve reached custody and visitation agreements in your divorce, you often expect that those agreements will be respected by both parents. Even if you’re unhappy with the terms, they’ve been agreed upon in court, and unless you’re contesting a court decision, your divorce agreements will stand. However, some parents still have a difficult time adhering to their custody and visitation schedules, creating problems for both parents. That’s where I come in. At Amber M. Serwat Mediation, I help parents in the Burnsville, Minnesota area work through their parenting time disputes as a parenting time expeditor (PTE).

Dispute Resolution with a Parenting Time Expeditor (PTE)

Because divorces often require mediation and custody is rarely agreed upon wholeheartedly by each parent, parenting time disputes are, unfortunately, highly common, especially among newly divorced parents. Immediately following a divorce, it can be difficult to adjust to the parenting schedules outlined by the court, and if you’re unhappy with your share of custody of your child, it’s nearly impossible to stay open-minded or level-headed when something goes amiss or you’re denied visitation during your scheduled time with your child. If you have a parenting time dispute that you want to handle quickly and without the cost or hassle of the courtroom, contact a PTE for parenting time dispute resolutions.

Solving Common Parenting Problems after Divorce with a PTE

Although parenting disputes are limited somewhat by the agreements created in court and mediations, there’s never an end to life’s curveballs. We simply cannot prepare you for every possible issue that can arise following a divorce, and that means that there often have to be adjustments made to parenting time agreements even if both parties have agreed upon visitation and custody schedules. If something changes in your schedule, your former spouse’s schedule, or even your child’s schedule, you should know that, although your divorce does come with time stipulations, these can be altered and reconsidered by a parenting time expeditor on a case-by-case basis to better help you and your child make a comfortable adjustment.

If you need to have a court order interpreted, clarified, or even enforced, the fastest and least stressful way to make it through parenting time disputes is to utilize a parenting time expeditor. As a Burnsville, Minnesota PTE, I make sure that all parties involved in parenting time disputes can be satisfied as much as possible, adhering to court orders while providing aid in adjusting, applying, or reinterpreting court orders to take changing and unforeseen circumstances into account. If you’re in need of a parenting time expeditor to quickly resolve your parenting time dispute, Amber M. Serwat Mediation is here to help with a cost-effective resolution that will minimize conflict.
