What can you do with Expenses?

With OurFamilyWizard® Expenses, you’ll spend less time on co-parenting finances, and you’ll face less stress from financial disagreements. (Plus, you’ll need fewer apps.) 

Make it simple

No more confusing spreadsheets or complex budgeting apps. Our Expenses feature is straightforward and easy to navigate. You don’t even need a separate app to pay—you have the option to pay in-app with OFWpay™. Keep everything centralized and simplified. 

Money is a tough topic, but it’s easier when it’s streamlined.  

Focus on the expense

When you create an expense, you have to fill out all the fields (purchase date, category, amount, etc.). This template creates clear records. But the only open-ended field is “Expense name”—so you don’t have to open up a conversation beyond the facts.  

Just a brief, business-like transaction. 

Keep conversations honest

Money talk can get complicated and even emotional—especially if it’s a case of your word against your co-parent’s. But if you logged a payment through the app or posted a reimbursement request with an attached receipt, then the record is clear.  

It’s one way to cut down on conflict.  

Pay in the app 

With OFWpay, you can pay directly in the app. (Available for U.S. co-parents.) 

  • Make secure e-payments
  • Create a definitive record
  • Set up scheduled payments
  • Use fewer apps for co-parenting

Reimbursement requests are automatically updated when you pay through OFWpay. You can also pay via “check-other” (like Zelle, Venmo, or PayPal) and log it in your account. But paying through OFWpay means there’s indisputable proof of every payment. You can even set up scheduled payments for child support or other expenses, and they’ll send automatically.

Custom categories

You’ll start out with default categories, but you can also add your own, along with custom percentage splits. This way the Expenses feature reflects your parenting agreement and keeps everyone on the same page.  

Add receipts

You can snap a photo from inside the app as you’re creating an expense, and it will automatically attach. A quick and easy way to show what you spent.

Frequently asked questions

How do payments work in OurFamilyWizard?

In Expenses, you can pay one or more expenses at a time, and you can pay them in full or in part. You can choose to pay by “check/other” or by OFWpay (if you have it set up).  

How do I set up OFWpay?

Once you’re in Expenses, select OFWpay, then tap “Get Started.” Enter the required information to link your bank account. Your co-parent will need to do the same—and then you’ll see the OFWpay option when making a payment.  

Can I edit or delete an expense?

Yes but only if you created it, and your co-parent hasn’t responded yet. Once it becomes a two-way interaction, it’s a permanent part of the expenses record.  

What if my co-parent creates an incorrect expense?

If your co-parent sends a request that is inaccurate, you always have the option to refuse the request. It is still logged in the register, but marked as “refused.” 

Document everything, easily

  • Permanently log every expense 
  • Track all expense activity in one place 
  • Create custom PDF reports quickly 
  • Save time, stress, and legal fees

If you give your family law professionals access, they can download court-admissible expense reports, too.
