High-Conflict Custody Cases in North Carolina
Child custody is an issue that can inflame the passions, disagreements, and conflict of parents undergoing divorce or seeking modifications to existing custody orders. These types of cases may be fought in the courts for months or even years. Unfortunately, they can have a negative effect on children who are exposed to these often bitter battles. For this reason, it is best to make every effort to resolve such cases as amicably as possible using all available legal methods and means. These can include skilled negotiation, mediation, counseling, and the use of a Parent Coordinator prior to litigation.
At The Law Offices of Annette R. Heim, P.A., our experienced attorney has helped many parents engaged in highly-emotional and contentious custody cases.

Almost any custody case brings with it problems and difficulties that parents must face and resolve. However, in high-conflict cases, these problems are magnified to the point where parents may not be able to even act in a civil manner towards one another. This inability to communicate and cooperate is often marked by anger, distrust, aggression, and even verbal abuse. In such cases, parents may have lost sight of the harm this can cause to the very people to whom they owe comfort and care: their children.
In a high-conflict situation, you need a referee who can help you focus on problem-solving as opposed to battle. An effective family law attorney can help in this through skilled negotiation tactics employed to foster better communication and compromise. Other tactics that can be used include alternative dispute resolution methods. These include mediation and the use of a Parent Coordinator.
Parent Coordinators are court-appointed professionals used to help parents reach acceptable decisions on custody and parenting plans. These Coordinators are neutral parties who are trained in reducing the level of conflict, raising the level of positive communication, and helping you and your spouse work together based on your desire to do what is best for your child(ren). In cases where you have reached an impossible impasse, the Parent Coordinator may make decisions for you to be approved by the court.
