Doylestown, PA – Lynelle A. Gleason of Williams Family Law, P.C. is now a trained facilitator for Pennsylvania’s new parent coordination rules for child custody, which went into effect March 1, 2019. Gleason completed coursework in parent coordination at the Good Shepherd Mediation Program, a justice center in Philadelphia.
As a parent coordinator, Gleason will be able to address such issues as transitions between households, variations from the parenting plan for special events, childcare arrangements, extracurricular activities and other matters related to implementing a parenting plan. Parent coordinators must be licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania either as an attorney or mental health professional with a master’s degree or higher and have completed this specialized training.
“I applaud Lynelle on taking on this important element of the custody process,” said Williams Family Law founder and managing partner Jeffrey M. Williams. “This role is a key one in addressing conflict in dual-custody situations. She will be committed to proactively and effectively proposing solutions that will allow parents to resolve such issues without having to return to court.”
Gleason handles a variety of family law matters, including divorce, child support, alimony, spousal support, equitable distribution and child custody. She is a certified mediator in divorce and custody cases and is also experienced in estate law. She is a member of an Interdisciplinary Group, a select group of child custody evaluators and domestic relations attorneys that focuses on best practices regarding important child custody issues such as the use of a psychologist and therapist during the family law process.
