Resources For Effective Co-Parenting After DivorceOne of the most difficult changes after a divorce is learning how to effectively co-parent your children when you and your ex live in two different places. It was hard enough to navigate co-parenting when you were all under one roof. Divorce presents a new set of challenges for couples who share children. Emotionally, you may be ready to move on with your life, but the fact is that you remain connected to your ex because of your children. There are strong resources to help you manage this part of the process.

Post-Divorce Mediation Services
Mediation can be used after a divorce is final, whether you used it to settle the terms of your divorce or to proceed through the courts. You can partner with a mediator who can help you amend many aspects of your divorce agreement. It is impossible to anticipate all of the issues that will arise after your divorce is final, so mediation gives you some flexibility to make changes when they are necessary, without going back to court.

Custody Mediation
As you children age, their needs change and your custody agreement may need to be changed in order to meet their new needs. Custody mediation focuses on making these changes in a mediation setting, so that both parties can weigh in and ultimately decide on the best path forward, keeping your children as the top priority.

Co-Parenting Coaching
A co-parenting coach works exclusively with one individual and can help guide you about a wide variety of co-parenting issues including protecting your children from conflict, best practices for making decisions together on behalf of your kids, and how to keep track of and communicate about shared expenses related to custody.

Communication Coaching
Communication is one very important part of co-parenting after divorce and is often already very strained between the two parties. A communication coach can work with you to help you achieve effective communication with your ex. This includes things like strategies for raising concerns, best practices for business-like (transactional) communication, how to listen effectively, and expressing disagreement and/or frustration in productive ways.

Other Parenting Resources
AMS Mediation also offers additional parenting resources for families who need support. We can provide parenting consulting services, parenting time expeditor services and early neutral evaluations and custody evaluations when necessary.
