Dillon Goss began Navigation Services after recognizing the need for consistent, compassionate protocols regarding:
- Parenting times. Among separated and divorcing families throughout Montana, many families, and specifically the children, require a thoughtful and focused approach to meeting needs and to reducing anxiety, while seeking documentation.
- Guardian Ad Litem services. Many times, these complex family law cases require an objective perspective to serve the best interests of the children, whose needs are often misunderstood.
- Drug testing services. Addiction can be a very real and heartbreaking component to separation, divorce and custody. The clarity of swift and prompt drug/ alcohol testing assists in determining the healthiest outcome for all involved.
- Parental Mediation. Often, following the settlement of a parenting plan, one or both parties arrive at complex parenting crossroads. Judges throughout Montana refer families to Navigation Services to assist with mediating in parenting protocols following divorce.
- Subscription Services. Navigation offers a monthly service to monitor all texts and emails between parties. In this way, neither party is subject to open hostility without a record.
- Parenting Assessments. Navigation Services offers a parenting assessment with swift results for both court assessments and private parties.
- Transportation services. Navigation offers transport to and from appointments and supervised parenting times. Our vehicles are equipped with dual dash cams as well. This transport service aids in reducing interactions in instances of Orders of Protection and when a custodial parent is unable to bring their child to a supervised parenting time.
Navigation Services now collaborates with mediators, therapists, attorneys, victim advocates, the court system, Family Court Services and multiple community support systems.
Why we started Navigation Services
Kim Goss has worked in the social services field for twenty years from residential treatment centers, to launching a program for Intermountain in Kalispell, offering in-home therapeutic services to children. Kim was raised with a large extended multi-cultural family but was also a parent who navigated the Family Court system with her own two sons. This experience evolved into a desire to assist other families through the separation and divorce process - keeping the best interests of the child in the forefront.
Kim is also a former co-owner of a supervised visitation facility offering parenting time to parents through Child and Family services in Kalispell. Kim has multiple resources throughout the community and actively searches for the best outcomes for the good of the child(ren) involved in parenting time cases. Kim has experience working in the area of domestic abuse, knowledge of determining safety capacity for children in the care of a parent receiving direct supervision and understands the critical nature and importance of following the protocols of a parenting plan.
