IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that individuals who wish to be considered for inclusion on the roster of qualified parenting coordinators must complete and submit a Qualified Parenting Coordinator Application form and all required documentation to the Court Administrators Office.  Individuals included on the roster must update information contained in their applications, if necessary, by providing written notice of any changes to Court Administration within 30 days of said changes.  Furthermore, in order to remain on the circuit’s roster, individuals must submit a Qualified Parenting Coordinator Renewal form and a Continuing Parenting Coordination Education Reporting form no later than December 31st of every odd-number calendar year to Court Administration. Failure to keep roster information current or provide renewal/reporting forms by the due date will result in an individual’s removal  from the circuit’s roster of qualified parenting coordinators without further notice.
