Outlining a parenting coordinator's qualifications

The hope is that as divorcing parents work through child custody proceedings in Hernando County, they may put aside the personal differences and disagreements that might have contributed to their separation in order to come up with a parenting plan that is in their kids' best interests. Often, however, that is not possible, and in such cases, the court may be required to appoint a parenting coordinator.

Divorce and mental health

For Floridians going through divorce, it can be difficult to spot the light at the end of a tunnel.

Regardless of the stage, divorce can have a number of different effects on family members.
