Resolving Parenting Time Conflict with My ExCo-parenting during and after divorce is easily one of the most difficult parts of the process. After all, divorce generally means that you will see your kids less than when you were a family unit and that is difficult for everyone. Difficulty managing a parenting time agreement is a very common conflict between a former couple that shares children. AMS Mediation offers parenting support services like a Parenting Time Expeditor, to help your family navigate these challenges. A parenting time expeditor (PTE) is appointed by the courts and can make legally binding decisions about parenting time schedules, potential trades, vacation time, special events, and phone/email communication requests while kids are with the opposite parent.

What is a Parenting Time Expeditor?

AMS Mediation offers co-parenting support services including parenting time expeditor services to clients in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. A parenting time expeditor can help you resolve issues about parenting time without having to go through the traditional court process. This can save you significant time and money and a lot of stress. It is important to note that a parenting time expeditor is not able to address issues related to parenting communication, health care decisions, extracurricular activities, daycare, etc. A PTE specifically focuses on parenting time and is able to review and enforce parenting time agreements and make decisions about parenting time that may not be covered in the terms of the current agreement.

The primary benefit of services like a Parenting Time Expeditor is that it keeps you from having to battle every single issue you face in court. The court is not set up to weigh in on relatively minor parenting time disputes and mediation can be an efficient and cost-effective way to resolve these issues in a fair and balanced way. Solutions can be faster and better for you and your family when they are made outside of the courtroom.
