Parenting Plans

Research suggests that developing a comprehensive, individualized parenting plan with a mental health divorce coach helps prioritize your children’s needs during this transitional period and in the future. A typical parenting plan often outlines scheduled time with each parent, holidays and vacations, major decision-making, exchange of information, how to handle an impasse on a parenting issue and how the plan might be updated in the future.

Child Specialists

The child specialist provides a safe place for children to share their feelings and concerns and ask questions about the divorce process. A child specialist plays an important, time-limited role in helping parents understand what their children are experiencing and what their needs are during the divorce process and in the future. The child specialist serves as a resource to parents and provides feedback to the collaborative team as they develop a parenting plan that strives to ensure the best interest of the children. For special needs families, JSSA offers guidance and expertise with their unique challenges.
