Put simply, a Parenting Time Expeditor (PTE) is a narrowly defined Parenting Consultant. PTEs work with parents to mediate conflicts specifically regarding parenting time. PTEs can issue decisions regarding existing parenting time orders but CANNOT make decisions about other parenting disputes such as school placement, discipline and medical protocols. A PTE is appointed by the court, is statutory based and is a confidential process.
The process and fees for Parenting Time Expediting are very similar to those Erin uses for Parenting Consulting. Please refer to the Parenting Consulting tab for more information.
