For many families, the conflicts do not simply go away after a divorce is finalized. Even when there are two parents seeking to act in the best interests of their children, there is often conflict surrounding just what those best interests really are. Rather than expending time and financial resources pursuing litigation over day-to-day parenting matters, a parenting consultant can be called in to mediate disputes and achieve a positive outcome for the child.
A Trusted St. Paul and Minneapolis Parenting Consultant
At the law firm of Berg, Debele, DeSmidt & Rabuse, P.A., in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we offer parenting consulting services from Nancy Zalusky Berg, a lawyer with a tremendous track record of success in family law. She is a thought leader on issues such as custody and parenting time and is looked to as an expert by her colleagues throughout the nation.
What Does a Parenting Consultant Do?
A parenting consultant can address a wide variety of issues facing parents, including:
- Parenting time
- Visitation schedules
- Disputes over parenting methods
- Disputes over discipline
- Disputes over a child's activities (sports, school clubs, after-school activities)
- Financial considerations (purchases made for the child)
What Power Does a Parenting Consultant Have?
Both parents will sign a contract that governs the terms of the parenting consulting. When a dispute arises, mediation will be the first course of action for achieving a resolution. If that fails, the parenting consultant has the legal power to decide on a solution. If one or both parents disagree with the recommended solution, they can choose to go to court in an attempt to have the decision modified or reversed.
