Parenting Plans

Creating and managing a parenting plan is tough, but important work. Parenting plans will have many different aspects, including scheduling and sharing expenses, so use an online communication tool to ensure your family has access to every detail.

Creating a flexible and documented parenting plan is key.Setting up parenting plans is hard work, and requires a large degree of organisation. The OurFamilyWizard® website is an excellent tool for doing just that, whether you are going through a divorce or if your current spouse has children from a previous marriage. Whatever your individual situation, the OurFamilyWizard® website is equipped to help you with any number of different parenting time tasks. There are many different tools at your disposal for staying organised, and lots of options for opening channels of communication between parents, as well as between parents and children.

Parenting plans often fail because one parent does not have sufficient access to the plan, or because of a lack of input. However, the OurFamilyWizard® website offers a central location for parenting plans that guarantees all parents involved have equal access to the information stored there. This allows any parent involved to propose a change to visitation schedules, and any changes that are proposed must be accepted by the other parties in order to take effect. If you are looking for an easy way to open communication and stay organised when it comes to sharing, trading, giving, and receiving parenting time, then the OurFamilyWizard® website is a great place to start.

When you sign up for the OurFamilyWizard® website, not only do you gain access to a parenting planning centre, but you also gain access to a wide array of tools for parenting. Everything from documenting expenses to medical and education record storage is at your disposal, and these documents can be shared with parties that need to access them. If you are currently going through a divorce, these documents can even be used in court, and the schedules and calendars can help you stay organised during this stressful and frustrating period in your life.

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.
