What is a Special Master in Family Law?

A professional who helps divorced parents that are struggling frequently with their ex, better understand and resolve disputes over the parenting plan.  A Special Master is in a unique quasi-judicial role, whereby they can provide recommendations and solutions to the attorneys and Courts. This is designed so that you may decrease the need, time and stress spent in Court. Dr. Tonkins and Jessica St. Clair, MFT provide education, and recommendations to the courts within the scope of a court appointment.
   

WHY PARENTS & COURTS CHOOSE SPECIAL MASTERS/ PARENTING PLAN COORDINATORS:

It is considerably less costly (financially & emotionally) than returning to court for every dispute over the parenting plan.  Most importantly, parents have the opportunity to process in depth the problems within the plan and creatively come up with ideas best suited for their children and themselves.  Because parents are actively being heard and participating in this process, they feel a sense of control over the outcomes. Recommendations/decisions are made more cooperatively and expeditiously.   Parents have the opportunity to ask questions about the meaning of "best interest" of the child with the Creative Custody Solutions Team.
