The paper presents a typology of co-parental relationships of divorced couples, based on an empirical examination of the quality of the co-parental relationship, the parental functioning of each parent, and the parents' means of conflict resolution (compromise, attack) in a sample of 50 divorced couples. Similar to previous typologies, three types of co-parental relationships are identified: cooperative, parallel, and conflictual. In addition, variables relating to the divorce process and to the parents' personalities were also examined, and found to have significant associations with the three types.
