Do We Need a Parenting Consultant?

The goal of a parenting consultant is simple – to help families navigate the difficult issues surrounding many common co-parenting issues like parenting time disagreements (visitation), discipline or differences in parenting styles, educational, extracurricular issues and problems with agreement on schedules. A parenting consultant is generally appointed by the court, but parents can make a recommendation for who they want to work with. Co-parenting during and after divorce is challenging. Your parenting consultant can help you find solutions for issues that come up between you and your ex, decisions that are in the best interest of your kids. It is important to know that your parenting consultant can make decisions if needed.

Johnson Mediation is a mediation firm based in Victoria, Minnesota that serves clients all over Minnesota and Wisconsin.
