Parenting Coordinator/Decision Maker Your Premier Colorado Attorneys

Greeley Parenting Coordinator & Decision Maker Lawyers

Parents can find themselves in conflict over the best way to resolve the parenting issue in divorce, separation, or post-divorce child custody matters. Many reasons exist for this, typically emotionally based, that make it exceptionally difficult to come to acceptable agreements, called Parenting Plans, that a family court judge must approve.

Colorado lawmakers understand this, which is why legislation was enacted in 2005, creating Parenting Coordinators to negotiate agreements and Decision Makers to make final determinations in these child custody legal proceedings. 

At Peek Goldstone, LLC, we are here to make these problematic matters less adversarial for parents and children and find ways to help you reach appropriate and acceptable parenting arrangements. 

We offer skilled negotiation outside of court and mediation services, including court-appointed Parent Coordinators and Decision Makers. The local courts have appointed Attorneys Amanda Peek and Monique DuPont for these purposes. As mediators, they can help you resolve child-related disputes peacefully and cooperatively. They can also decide on these issues when all other efforts fail. 

Contact Peek Goldstone, LLC to consult with a Greeley Parent Coordinator or Decision Maker at (970) 352-8611 about your case. 

Overview of Parenting Coordinators & Decision Makers in Colorado

A Parenting Coordinator in Colorado family law is a neutral third party appointed by the court to assist in resolving disputes between parents concerning parenting issues; they act as a mediator. Mediators cannot give legal advice or make legal decisions for parents. Their job is to listen, suggest ways to find common ground, and facilitate positive communication and problem-solving toward an acceptable resolution. 

Courts can also appoint a Decision Maker in cases where parents cannot resolve conflict even through mediation. With the parents' consent, the court authorizes these latter appointees to make final determinations about parenting agreements that are generally binding for at least two years. These appointees are specially trained individuals with appropriate qualifications and an independent perspective acceptable to the court.

How Can Parenting Coordinators & Decision Makers Help?

Parenting Coordinators/Decision Makers can assist in addressing complex parental issues.

Issues they can help with and the support they can provide can include: 

  • Impartial and professional perspectives on the situation. One or both parties may believe bias exists on the part of either party and/or negotiators. By involving a neutral third party, parties can have confidence in the fairness of the negotiations.
  • A professional who can establish guidelines. Having negotiation guidelines enables both parties to express themselves freely without feeling restrained or intimidated by the other party.
  • Assistance with communication challenges: Developing effective communication strategies and guidelines ensures that both parties can communicate respectfully and efficiently.
  • Assistance with conflict resolution: These professionals can help to identify the sources of conflict between parents and work with them to find answers and develop strategies to minimize conflicts.
  • Parenting Plan Implementation: They can guide parents in implementing their parenting plan by creating structured guidelines and providing resources to ensure smooth execution.
  • Co-Parenting Cooperation: They can promote cooperation between parents by facilitating discussions, offering suggestions, and fostering a positive co-parenting environment.
  • Decision-Making Assistance: They can help parents navigate decision-making processes related to their children's education, healthcare, and other essential aspects, promoting consensus and reducing disputes.
  • Resource Referrals: They can suggest relevant resources, such as counseling services or co-parenting classes, to help parents enhance their parenting skills and cope with challenging situations.

Parenting Coordinators and Decision Makers can be appointed through the agreement of both parties, upon the request of one party, or by the court’s initiative.

    "So glad to have met them both"
    Brian Klein and Brie Garhart were just outstanding with my case. Throughout the process they listened to my concerns and worked hard to get the outcome that was more than satisfactory for me. They were with me all the way calming my fears and at the end celebrating the outcome. So glad to have met them both and to have had the opportunity for them to work on my case and I call them friends.

    "Amanda Peek and Scott Goldstone are the absolute best in Colorado!!!!"
    Amanda Peek and Scott Goldstone are the absolute best in Colorado!!!! I could not ask for better attorneys. Thank you everyone on the Peek Goldstone team for all of the hard work you do. You all are awesome! Mr. Scott Goldstone has been my attorney since 2015. During the storms I have had to go through in order to have a relationship with my son, Scott has flawlessly guided and advised me through it all. I had the chance to work with Amanda as well, and she is just as wonderful as Scott. I would not be where I am at today with my son if it wasn't for Scott and Amanda. Thank you both so much for everything you have done and are continuing to do for my son and I. I am very grateful to have the both of you in my life. A huge shout out to all of the paralegals and other staff members working for the law office of Peek Goldstone. Everytime I call the office, you are very professional and helpful! Anybody reading this review that is in need of a family lawyer, Scott and Amanda are the attorneys for you. The investment in their team is worth every penny.

    "I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone"
    Having received poor advice from a different law office and attorney, I was feeling distressed due to the criminal charges made against me. Seeing an ad for Peek Goldstone in my local paper, I gave them a call. Right from the initial consultation I knew I had found the right person for the job! Brian Klein treated me with respect and was nothing short of brilliant in his ability to leave no stone unturned in order to represent me in the best possible light. Will you have to pay for his services? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes! I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone for your criminal case.
