Now providing virtual services for families.
Sometimes families reach impasses that prevent them from resolving coparenting challenges. Coparenting consultation sessions provide a respectful environment for both parents to receive coparenting education and to share their concerns in order to develop a written plan of action. The licensed mental health professional is able to provide recommendations and relevant information in order to assist in the formulation of a plan in the best interest of the child. This is a form of alternative dispute resolution using coparenting focused education to aid in communication between parents to promote settlement of disputes and better understanding of coparenting issues. This process assists in designing a coparenting plan that outlines current and future details regarding how you are going to raise your child between their two homes.
Do not e-mail or otherwise communicate with Mr. Craig regarding the history of your case, your concerns regarding the other parent, or other relevant information prior to your initial session though you are encouraged to address your concerns on your personal data form.
Please deliver each form separately via .pdf scan to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax (972) 704-2912. Once all the forms are fully completed and on file by both parents, an initial appointment letter will be sent to the parents to schedule the initial joint appointment. Because of the nature of court connected cases, it is important for us to maintain a written paper trail so phone calls will not be returned. If you have questions, please send questions in e-mail.
The following forms are needed on file prior to initiating services:
Please deliver each complete form (not separate pages of each form) separately via .pdf scan to email@example.com or fax (972) 704-2912. Once all the forms are fully completed and on file by both parents, an initial appointment letter will be sent to the parents to schedule the initial joint appointment. Sessions are held virtually between the hours of 9 to 5 M-Th. Because of the nature of court connected families, it is important for us to maintain a written paper trail so phone calls will not be returned. If you have questions, please send questions in e-mail.
Please do not send paper copies of information as we maintain digital files. If you mail your documents, you will be charged the rate of $200.00 per hour for time spent scanning documents in to digital format so you are encouraged to fax or scan your material.
Do NOT provide further information unless requested or approved by Mr. Craig in advance.
The rate for Coparenting Consultation services is $150.00 per hour rounded up to the nearest 15 minute increment. This includes all services of the coparenting consultant including reviewing documentation, records management, meetings, correspondences, phone contact, e-mail, court time, reports, legal expenses, consultation with other professionals, deliberation, and issuance of recommendations when parents are unable to resolve issues themselves if authorized by the court.
Payments for services may be made with cash, check, Pay Pal, credit/debit, or money order and are expected to be paid at the end of each session or on the day of receipt of an invoice. Checks should be made out to Between Two Homes. There is a $35 returned check fee per returned check.
Returned checks will be charged the maximum fee allowable under law.
If either parent must cancel a session, it must be done in writing within 48 weekday business hours of the scheduled appointment. Business hours are defined as weekday business, non-holiday hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Arriving after 15 minutes of the scheduled meeting beginning time will be considered a cancellation. Cancellations of any appointment with less than 48 weekday (Monday through Friday, excluding holidays) hours notice will result in the canceling party being billed the entire service fee. Payment for the canceled session is to be made upon receipt of invoice. Payment for the canceled session will be paid by the parent who did not cancel on time, was late, or did not attend and will be for the entire session fee for the duration the session was scheduled. If a parent leaves a session early the remainder of the time for that session will be charged to that parent. If the Order to participate in parenting coordination services stipulates that only one parent be financially responsible and the other parent cancels without the 48 weekday business hours of the scheduled appointment notice, the canceling parent is still responsible for that charge.
Other costs: Each of the parties is responsible for any fees for production of third party records or other information related to services. Costs for copying of records by the Coparenting Consultant and other administrative costs will be deducted from the retainer. Copies of records produced by Between Two Homes, LLC. are billed at the same fee as charged by the District Clerk’s office. Time in administrative tasks, including correspondence to parties, attorneys, or reports to the court, is billed at the parenting facilitator’s standard hourly fee.
If a client or attorney requests a court appearance, deposition, or participation in any type of settlement conference by Mr. Craig there will be a minimum charge and deposit of eight hours at $250.00 per hour ($2000.00) per day for live attendance or a deposit of four hours at $250.00 per hour ($1000.00) for virtual attendance. If the court or both attorneys request a court appearance, deposition, or participation in any type of settlement conference by Mr. Craig, these fees are split unless otherwise addressed in the order. Once the deposit is received Mr. Craig will block of the time to appear. Such fees are due at least one week before the scheduled appearance and are nonrefundable within a week of the scheduled appearance as we must clear our schedule whether the hearing occurs or not.
