What is the role of a parenting coordinator?

At the judge’s discretion, the judge can appoint a parenting coordinator to help the parents resolve parenting disputes that arise over time. The parenting coordinator is supposed to help empower the parents and minimize the degree of conflict between them. The fees and costs of the parenting coordinator are usually divided between the parents by the judge.1

The parenting coordinator has to provide at least one status report to the judge every six months.2
