Attorney Daniel J. Freyberg is a trained Parenting Coordinator in Brevard County, Florida. Parenting Coordination can best be described as a “child-centered intervention for divorced or separated parents whose children are at risk for harm due to exposure to ongoing conflict and parents who are distracted by divorce.” Carter, D.K. (2011) Parenting Coordination: A Practical Guide for Family Law Professionals, New York, NY: Springer Publishing Company.
This relatively new dispute resolution method is generally reserved for only the highest conflict parents, and only a few professionals are trained and available to help parents in this specialized manner. The process requires a Court Order, and then a contractual relationship between the parents and the Parenting Coordinator. While the process is described as “child-centered”, the children themselves are rarely involved, and the process is focused on assisting the parents to find new ways to effectively share their children in a way that reduces stress on the children by reducing conflict between the parents.
Attorney Daniel J. Freyberg has been involved in working with children and families in numerous settings during his nearly 40 year professional career. He is a parent himself; he has been a counselor, an instructor for children and adults, a juvenile Intake Officer, a Family Mediator, a Guardian ad Litem, as well as a Family Attorney, and has served in many other capacities, all devoted to the best interests of children and families.
