Supreme Court of Ohio Announces Parenting Coordination Toolkit
The Supreme Court of Ohio (SCO) announced on July 14 the availability of a Parenting Coordination Toolkit. Per the press release, "[t]he toolkit includes a guide to assist courts in writing a local rule for parenting coordination, a sample local rule, appointment order, screening form, intake form, evaluation tools, and other resources." Intended to support local courts as they develop their parenting coordination programs in line with the standardized Rules of Superintendence, the SCO model uses an alternative dispute resolution approach and is ready to implement fully if local courts choose to do so.
