Parenting consultation is an innovative, child-focused, alternative dispute resolution process for custody issues: a hybrid of education, mediation, and arbitration. It’s efficient, cost-effective, and can be empowering for all parties.

Minnesota’s Rule 114 offers parents an impartial forum in which to implement agreements made in court and facilitate making new ones. The parenting consultant provides a timely, less expensive alternative to litigating custody-related matters.

Protecting and sustaining meaningful parent-child relationships is the single, most important issue in marriage dissolution. The way you and your ex-partner handle parenting will have an enormous impact on your child. Resolving your conflicts is key to your child's happiness now and as an adult.
