Parents will need to fill up the Co-Parenting Questionnaire, which is to be submitted to the Parenting Coordinator on or before the first appointment.
The first appointment with the Parenting Coordinator will be a joint session with both parents at the Parent Coordinator’s office unless there are special reasons as to why a joint session should not be convened. Where a joint first session is deemed by the PC to be not suitable or appropriate, the Parenting Coordinator will meet with each parent individually.
At the first session, the Parenting Coordinator will explain the purpose of the sessions and how he/she would be working with the parents. This is a good opportunity for both parents to understand how each person can work with the Parenting Coordinator and with each other to be effective co-parents for the children. This is also the opportunity to clarify matters with the Parenting Coordinator. and to clarify any questions you may have.
Unless specified by the court, the Parenting Coordinator will work with both parents to decide on the frequency of the parenting coordination sessions, and make the necessary arrangements for subsequent sessions.
