October 8, 2015

If you are stuck in a difficult situation where you feel like your children’s best needs are not being met by your ex-spouse, consider teaming up with a Minnesota parenting consultant from Johnson Mediation. No issue is too big or small for our parenting consultant.

What is a Parenting Consultant?

A parenting consultant has a lot of similarities to a Parenting Time Expeditor. The difference is that parenting consultants are not authorized by Minnesota Statute. Their agreement is based simply on an agreed upon contract. A parenting consultant has the ability to make permanent schedule changes and can make the decision regarding legal custody if the two parties cannot agree. What is great about partnering with a parenting consultant is that they can put decisions in place quickly. Typically, running the issues through the court system can take more than 6 months to get a final decision.

Common Areas Where We Can Assist

  • Poor Judgement – If your ex-spouse is struggling with addiction, and it is having an affect on your children, our parenting consultant can get involved so that the kids best interests are addressed. Our parenting consultant can help oversee the sobriety and put in place positive parenting time goals for the individual if they maintain their life without drugs or alcohol. Alternatively, the parenting consultant can reduce parenting time if the individual falls back into bad habits.
  • Scheduling Based on Age – It makes sense that a newborn child may need to have a limited parenting time schedule with the father because of bonding and breastfeeding. A parenting consultant can assist with managing the parenting time schedule throughout the child’s stages of life. Once the child gets older, more parenting time would be made available to the father.
  • Assist with Legal Custody Decisions – Decisions around the appropriate school for your children, whether or not they need certain medical procedures, and which after school activities are appropriate are common issues that divorced families struggle with. Our parenting consultant can make these legal custody decisions if you are not able to agree.

So, if you live in Minnesota and are in need of some parenting support after a divorce, Johnson Mediation has you covered. Give us a call today at (952) 401-7599 to set up a free one hour consultation with our parenting consultant.
