OurFamilyWizard Features in Review

Two siblings cheer together while reading books together in the grass.

If your family has been touched by divorce, you know just how hard it can be. The actions that you and your co-parent take during this time can weigh heavily on your children today as well as into the future.

Communicating with your ex may not be something you enjoy doing right now. But if you have shared or joint custody, communication is both critical and necessary for the sake of your children.

Working early on to develop a well-crafted parenting plan can greatly reduce conflict in your shared parenting, which will also greatly benefit the health and wellbeing of your children.


OurFamilyWizard is built with features that help you strengthen your co-parenting

OurFamilyWizard has been a source of stability for families going through major upheavals for decades. During difficult family transitions, our features play a vital role in parents being able to maintain a routine and sense of normality for their children.

Features in review

Built with tools that anticipate your shared parenting needs, OurFamilyWizard helps you navigate modifications to your parenting plan today while maintaining a thorough record of communication throughout the process.


OFW Calendar


Keeping you on top of your family's schedule

A secure parenting time calendar with tools to track your custody schedule, share event details with assigned pick-up/drop off duties, schedule holiday custody, and propose requests for changes in parenting time with our patented schedule change request tool. 

OFW Message Board

Message Board

Extra support for your co-parenting communication

A concrete record of messages that cannot be edited, deleted, or retracted. Each message is timestamped when first-viewed by your co-parent. Extra features like ToneMeter™ support your efforts in keeping your conversations clear and collected.

OFW Journal


Your family album and virtual diary

GPS-verified Check-ins can confirm your presence at parenting time exchanges and events. Moments allow you to log observations, post photos, and document last-minute adjustments to your family's schedule. Share certain entries with your co-parent while keeping others private for your own notes.

OFW Expense Log

Expense Log

Simplify your co-parenting expense tracking

Accurately track your child-related spending with ease. Add receipts to each entry, notify your co-parent about upcoming payments, and preserve a complete history or reimbursements. In addition, OFWpay™ creates a simple way to send and receive payments with your co-parent. 

OFW Info Bank

Info Bank

A secure space for your crucial family data

Organize your children's medical histories, emergency contacts, insurance information, clothing sizes, and more in one secure location. Upload shared documents, from your child's report cards and homework to your parenting agreement and other paperwork.


Documentation is key to OurFamilyWizard

By maintaining accurate documentation of every entry within each feature on OurFamilyWizard, there is absolutely no room for miscommunication.

  • Every record records who made it and when
  • Notifications are sent to you when your co-parent creates, edits, or delete entries that are viewable to you
  • Download printable reports of messages, expenses, sign-in history, and more at no extra cost

Access for your whole family and your professionals

While you may use OurFamilyWizard for your co-parenting communication, it also includes features built to keep your whole family connected as well as the professionals who support you.

Limited-access accounts for children, stepparents, and other family members are free and can be created anytime. These accounts can view your family calendar, post journal entries, and send and receive their own messages.

Professional accounts are also free and may be granted to your attorney, mediator, parent coordinator, and any other legal or mental health practitioners who work with you or your family. A professional can monitor your family's account activity and work directly with your family on OurFamilyWizard as needed.

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.
