Family dispute resolution service for parents who continue to experience significant conflict with a co-parent.

ABSTRACT This webinar is for family law professionals who work with parents epxperiencing significant conflict in co-parenitng and implementing their parening plan often resulting in continuous court motions. 

When children are exposed to ongoing conflict between their parents, they are at risk for social and mental health problems, and may experience more difficulty with their own intimate relationships in the long term.  Parenting coordination can help to reduce parents’ conflict and may provide respite from exposure to their parents’ conflict.

Parenting coordination combines education, coaching, mediation and where necessary, arbitration, to interpret the parenting plan related to day-to-day decisions. The Parenting Coordinator provides information, effective tools and strategies for parents to improve their co-parent dynamic and communication to provide parents and children some respite from conflict. In some cases, the role of the parenting coordinator is to disengage the parents completely.

Hilary Linton is a senior family lawyer, mediator, parenting coordinator and arbitrator. She founded Riverdale Mediation after litigating family and civil matters for 14 years including as a partner in a Toronto boutique law firm. Riverdale’s team of highly skilled family mediators, parenting coordinators and arbitrators resolve high conflict and challenging disputes.
