Parenting coordinator roles just got a significant boost and increased clarity, according to Vicki L. Shemin and Jon Fields, in an op-ed co-written for Massachusetts Lawyers’ Weekly. With a rollout of new parenting coordinator roles rules (Probate & Family Court Standing Order 1-17, effective July 1) and the decision of the Appeals Court in Leon v. Cormier, Parenting Coordinators now have the boundaries of their roles more clearly defined than ever, and many of their logistical decisions about parenting that don’t affect the custody agreement can be enforced with the court’s authority. This still leaves big questions about what parenting coordinators should do in a variety of situations, especially where the wellbeing of the child may be at risk. Read more of Jon and Vicki’s reflections on this important new rule at Massachusetts Lawyers’ Weekly (subscription only).
