What is Our Family Wizard?
Our Family Wizard is a web-based tool designed to help divorced or separated parents communicate and manage co-parenting tasks more efficiently. It offers a variety of features, including a calendar to schedule visits and other important events, a messaging system for communication between parents, a financial tracking tool to manage expenses related to the children, a journal to document important information and decisions, and an info bank to store crucial family data such as medical histories, emergency contacts, and insurance information.
Why Use Our Family Wizard in a Divorce or Child Custody Case?
Divorce and child custody cases can be emotionally and logistically challenging, especially when it comes to co-parenting and communication. Our Family Wizard can help streamline these processes and make them less stressful for everyone involved.
For example, the calendar feature allows both parents to see when the children are with each parent, reducing the risk of scheduling conflicts or miscommunications. The messaging system allows for clear and organized communication, with timestamped messages that cannot be edited, deleted, or retracted. The financial tracking tool helps parents keep track of expenses related to the children, which can be especially important in cases where one parent is paying child support. The journal allows parents to document observations, post photos, and log last-minute adjustments to the schedule, and the info bank provides a secure space to store important family data.
