Gain an understanding of the Parenting Time Expediting process in this two-day training that covers the psychological, legal and practical aspects of resolving parenting time disputes. A Parenting Time Expeditor resolves parenting time disputes by clarifying and addressing parents’ issues and concerns regarding an existing parenting time order and, when appropriate, makes determinations as to unresolved disputes between parents.
