Parenting Time Expediting (PTE)

You can learn about the differences between Parenting Consulting and Parenting Time Expediting here.

High parental conflict following divorce is the best predictor of poor adjustment for children dealing with their parents’ divorce. This makes efforts to reduce parental conflict essential in promoting children’s wellbeing.

ROLE OF THE PARENTING TIME EXPEDITOR

Parenting time expeditors resolve parenting time disputes that occur after there is already a parenting time order in place or that occur while parenting time disputes are pending in court. Expeditors may be ordered by the court or chosen by either party. The expeditor attempts to provide a fair resolution that considers the needs of the parents as well as the needs of the children.

The Expeditor may be empowered to enforce, interpret, and clarify existing parenting time orders or to address circumstances not specifically covered by an existing parenting time order. The scope and ability of the Expeditor is either determined by the court or agreed upon by both parties at the beginning of the process.
