This presentation addresses specific issues and approaches for the use of a Parenting Plan Coordinator (PPC) in cases of high conflict custody and parenting. The use and concept for a Parenting Coordinator or a Special Master varies county by county throughout the State. This presentation addresses the application of a “referee” to cases with a single problem or multiple problems. Each case must consider the grounds for appointment; authority of the PPC (Parenting Plan Coordinator) to make decisions and orders; Court orders from recommendations: specific procedures; and fees. The views of a family law attorney and then Commissioner contrasted with an experienced psychologist give balance to the potential uses for a PPC. The materials contain examples of extensive Stipulations and Orders from 3 Northern California counties. Spend one hour and get a refreshed view of another tool for your toolbox.
