The OurFamilyWizard website provides an online child custody calendar (among other great features such as a child custody schedule) which makes it easy for parents to manage parenting time. One feature of the calendar is that historical records cannot be altered, a separate journal is provided within the calendar to keep historical records. This separation of features makes the records more clear and provides a more accurate picture of the custody arrangement. Whether you have sole custody or joint custody or your relationship is cooperative or conflicted, the OurFamilyWizard website can make managing your co-parenting custody schedule easier.
The right custody information
To ensure you have the right information for your child custody calendar, every entry on the OurFamilyWizard website is stamped with who made it and when it was made. Additionally, each page is stamped with the last time both parents viewed it, which helps to eliminate questions about whether or not the other parent has seen the information. By having an unbiased record of your custody related communications, you can help to reduce the amount of conflict or potential conflict. You will, more likely than not, find yourself in court less often; and when you are in court, you will have documentation to show what really happened, instead of the old "he said/she said" argument that can take forever to resolve. Keeping an accurate record of custody schedules and parenting time can be enough to get the other parent to be compliant.
Plan for changes in the custody schedule
The OurFamilyWizard website can make managing your child custody schedule much easier. You can map out parenting time up to three whole years into the future, if you so choose. This can help to make discussion about changes in the custody schedule happen earlier rather than last minute. This gives you more than enough time to plan ahead for big events or other major child custody calendar changes. Events are even labeled to show responsibility for who will be picking up and dropping off. The OurFamilyWizard website has some patent pending features like the Trade feature, which allows you to make requests to other parent and be able to document the changes to the custody calendar. You can also assign custody for special holidays like mother's day and father's day without messing up your entire parenting schedule.
Helping families manage custody calendars worldwide
Families in all 50 states and 70 countries use the OurFamilyWizard website to help remove conflict and avoid costly return trips to court. With tools like the child custody calendar and child custody schedule, reducing the amount of time you spend in court (and increasing the amount of quality time you spend with your child) is easy. Having a clear picture of family plans can help you to avoid costly mistakes (read our story about the simple mistake that lead to the creation of the site). Most every section of the site has a printer friendly format to ensure that the correct information is presented if you return to court.
Reduce the impact of custody conflict on your children
Other tools may promise to help you "win" your child custody case, but this is impossible. The best possible outcome is for your children to be minimally impacted by your separation or divorce. The transition to shared parenting will be most difficult for both you and the children at first. This is why it is best to try and find a regular and steady schedule. Both parents and children need to adjust to this new rhythm of parenting time exchanges. The more stable and less you deviate the easier it will be on everyone involved.
