The Benefits of a Court Ordered Coparenting Agreement

A coparenting agreement without a court order is simply a contract between unmarried parents — and as with any type of contract implies that both parents will perform their obligations in good faith. But if later on a parent does not perform his or her obligations as agreed (for example, the payment of child support), enforcement is only available if the other parent begins court proceedings (which can take many months to complete and involve substantial attorney fees).

With a court ordered coparenting agreement neither parent has to rely on the goodwill of the other. From the outset, each parents’ obligations are readily enforceable. So while a coparenting agreement without a court order may work in the short-term, it’s long-term effectiveness is unlikely.

What Does your Mediator Do?

In addition to their 25+ years of mediation experience, our Mediators have backgrounds in both law and psychology and are highly effective in making sure that unmarried couples with minor children make fully informed decisions about child support, custody (“Legal Decision-making) time-sharing, and all other legal and financial issues involved in their situation. After parents who are not married have decided everything, our Mediator prepares a comprehensive and legally binding coparenting agreement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why Mediate a Coparenting Agreement?

It is well-established that mediation is the least expensive and stressful way to resolve any disagreements without the hostility and substantial cost of using two traditional lawyers. During a coparenting mediation, the Mediator helps parents communicate and negotiate effectively, offers different options and alternative for resolving issues, and provides legal, financial, tax, and other child-related matters — all directed towards each parent making informed decisions.

With an experienced and expert Mediator, unmarried parents can rest assured that nothing has been overlooked and everything is legally binding including for example custody arrangements (“Legal Decision Making”), the child support amount, a time-sharing schedule for weekdays, weekends, holidays, and vacations, the payment of health insurance coverage for a minor child(ren), child-related tax deductions and credits, and many other important minor child-related matters.

Q: What is a Coparenting Agreement?

A coparenting agreement is a legally binding contract under which unmarried parents delineate their respective rights and obligations regarding a minor child(ren).
