Our Family Wizard

A great way to with communication after divorce is Our Family Wizard; the site has tools to better manage your child custody situation and improve communications – even with high-conflict ex-spouses.

Online Collaboration

Communication post-divorce is exceedingly difficult, if not impossible.  The Our Family Wizard tools work to improve communications during high-conflict, post-divorce child custody related issues.  It’s a safe, simple, and effective option when phone, face-to-face, and email direct contact just fails time and again.  The Our Family Wizard website facilitates the sharing of child custody related information, scheduling, and other essential contact matters.

Shared Calendars

Custody scheduling, parenting time, custodial interference – all of these are hot button areas that lead to significant upset.  Maintaining a clear, concise, and accurate shared calendar is a far easier solution than paper-and-pencil or creating something that is time-consuming and cumbersome in a spreadsheet program.   Shared access to the Our Family Wizard calendar gives both parents an unmistakable guide to parenting time and extracurricular activity responsibilities and so much more.

Documented audit trail makes any issues about he-said, she-said practically disappear and the documentation provided is acceptable in many family courts, too.  Trading and relinquishing parenting time is documented via the trade-swap feature.  This is a feature exclusive to the Our Family Wizard website – the trade/swap request.  This allows parents to request a parenting time change that the other parent can approve or deny. If approved – the parenting time calendar is immediately updated.  Parents may request to receive, relinquish, or trade time with the other parent. All requests have an expiration date for the other parent to approve or refuse parenting time modification. A verifiable record logs the date and time requests were made and responded to as well.

The Expense Log

Our Family Wizard simplifies the management of shared expenses including, but not limited to:

  • Unreimbursed medical co-pays
  • Extracurricular expenses
  • Child support

Parents can customize expense categories in association with their court orders (and even outside of the court orders).  Then, it’s a simple matter of entering reimbursement requests when expenses are incurred, as appropriate.  Parents can even coordinate transfers of payments using OFWpay, approve expenses, and even reject expenses that are requested for reimbursement if they are not in line with the court’s lawful order.

Records for Family Court

Our Family Wizard  provides the greatest level of support for families who frequently look to the court for reviews and modifications of orders. Every page on the site is printable.  The majority of the pages are able to be exported as PDF files. Best of all, business declarations can be ordered for any entry on the site.  This assures the admissibility in family court of any information exchanged on the site. The process for securing these records is simple and easy.  Further, the Our Family Wizard staff can help facilitate this process quite readily.

The money, time, and effort you will save by using Our Family Wizard more than makes it worth your investment.

  • Coordinate parenting time agreements, child custody orders, and associated schedules.
  • Document agreed-upon changes to the custodial arrangements, providing objective evidence and an audit trail in the event of future disputes.
  • Update the other parent regarding children’s extracurricular activities, holidays, school projects, etc. as appropriate.
  • No-spam secure message-sending interface.
  • Private or shared journal options.
  • Document shared expenses (required by court order or otherwise) with objective evidence and an audit trail.
  • Share and update family health history, including records, immunizations, school updates, virtual file cabinet, and more as appropriate for your specific situation.

This Our Family Wizard program is so popular that it is specifically being written into child custody orders in family courts in almost every state.  Judges are starting to recognize that reducing and eliminating sources of conflict is paramount for the children and to keep families out of the court room whenever possible.
