Child Custody Tracker, A Necessary Tool
A simple online child custody calendar can be a very powerful tool for families with divorced or separated parents. With an online child custody calendar, each party can easily schedule and track parenting time. This is a very important part of parenting if you are a divorced or separated parent. In addition to providing an organized calendar, this flexible tool also acts as a child custody tracker by providing accurate and detailed information about the actual visitation that is occurring between the two parties.
There are Many Benefits of a Child Custody Tracker
By using a child custody tracker, parents are able to be aware of how much actual time they are spending with their child/children versus how much time they are scheduled for. This can then help to better enforce your preset visitation and custody plans and make sure that each party receives the time that they deserve.
A child custody tracker provides each parent with accurate and accessible records of their visitation time meaning that if a conflict arises they will have access to all visitation information if the conflict goes to court. If both parties are aware that they can access these records at any time it often greatly reduces the chance of the initial conflict ever occurring.
If necessary, records obtained by a child custody tracker can be used in court as evidence. For instance, if strong evidence is presented using these records, they may aide with a change of custody, a reduction of child support, obtaining full custody, etc.
There is no more he said/she said. With accurate records that are easily accessible, the severity of conflicts that arise may be greatly reduced. As each party knows that all visitation and custody agreements are recorded through their child custody tracker, they may simply consult the recorded information to quickly and painlessly solve the conflict.
Additional Aide Provided by the Child Custody Tracker
Everyone has a very busy daily schedule. Your work life, family life, and social life may sometimes overlap. Your priorities may lie with your family and children buy everyone knows that sometimes you have obligations that conflict with the time you spend with them. The OurFamilyWizard Calendar tool has a built-in feature, which helps with the process of requesting visitation time changes with your co parent. When a time change is requested each party will receive a notification of the request. They will then have the option to approve the request, refuse the request, or to make a counter offer. In addition to this, notifications are also sent to all parties if a scheduling conflict ever arises such as overlapping events.
Whether you have been co parenting for a month or for many years, it is always a painful process when revisiting your case in court, not to mention expensive. All of the necessary tools are readily available for you to keep yourself out of court, but you must utilize them. The use of a child custody tracker easily takes away much of the stress and headache of being a co parent.
NOTE: Many state and federal laws use terms like ‘custody’ when referring to arrangements regarding parenting time and decision-making for a child. While this has been the case for many years, these are not the only terms currently used to refer to these topics.
Today, many family law practitioners and even laws within certain states use terms such as ‘parenting arrangements’ or ‘parenting responsibility,’ among others, when referring to matters surrounding legal and physical child custody. You will find these terms as well as custody used on the OurFamilyWizard website.
