Parent Coordination Primer Part One of a Two-Part Episode with Attorney/Mediator, Carolyn Kalos on Divorce & Beyond #240

This week and next, Susan speaks with Attorney/Mediator, Carolyn Kalos in a special two-part episode sharing everying you need to know about Parent Coordination:  What it is and How it Can Help Your High Conflict Co-Parenting!

Carolyn Kalos has been practicing in New York City, some of the busiest courts in the country for over 25 years and spend many of those years in the courtroom with some of the most difficult cases involving children.  She knows the ins and outs of the system AND it's limitations.  One thing that Carolyn knows for sure is that the court is very often not the best place to resolve issues between co-parents when it comes to disagreements about their kids.  

With her special expertise and many years of experience in the family courts as an advocate, Carolyn is passionate about helping families stay out of the system as much as possible, even high conflict cases.  She is a sought-after Parent Coordinator (PC) in New York and is seeing a large uptick in the number of judges appointing PCs and in attorneys suggesting them to clients.  But what exactly is Parent Coordination?  How does it work, how do you find a good one and how does it keep you and your family out of court?

This is a big topic, and is such an important one, that we had to make it a two-parter so listen to Part One now and tune in next Monday for the conclusion in Part Two!

About this week's special guest:

Thriving in divorce and beyond means not having to worry about the safety of your children when it comes to co-parenting. With alcohol abuse on the rise, many co-parents are turning to the system committed to providing proof, protection, and peace of mind. Soberlink’s alcohol monitoring system is the most convenient, reliable, and reasonable way for a parent to provide evidence that they are not drinking during parenting time. Soberlink’s real-time alerts, facial recognition, and tamper detection ensure the integrity of each test, so you can be confident your kids are with a sober parent. With Soberlink, judges rest assured that your child is safe, attorneys get court-admissible evidence of sobriety, and both parents have empowerment and peace of mind. Pull back the curtain on the mysteries of parenting time and trust The Experts in Remote Alcohol Monitoring Technology™ to keep you informed and your kids safe and secure.
