PARENTING TIME DISPUTE RESOLUTION: Parenting Time Expeditor Services
A Parenting Time Expeditor can be hired to help resolve parenting time disputes that
arise under the parenting time (or visitation) order that is in place. In other words, the
parenting time dispute has arisen because one or both parents believe the letter or intent
of their court order is not being obeyed or is likely to be violated by the other.
Rather than filing a parenting time action in court, the parties engage in mediation with the
Expeditor in an attempt to resolve the dispute. If the mediation is unsuccessful, as often
happens, then the Expeditor makes a decision much as the judge would.
The parents and child(ren) benefit from the fact that the dispute will be resolved quickly
and out of court.
