Keeping the children out of the middle.

Reduce parental conflict

Decrease the size of your court list by requiring the use of the OurFamilyWizard website you can greatly reduce the number of repeat visits from conflicting parents. When parents do return to court over disputes relating to children, data is clearly formatted with the necessary information you need to make a judgment, saving you time and the parties unnecessary cost.

Empower parents to resolve issues themselves

Using an online shared co-parenting tool like the OurFamilyWizard website to coordinate parenting time and visitation/custody schedules, parenting plans and manage family information can help to eliminate miscommunications and confusion caused by parenting from separate households.

Get rid of the he "said she said" that plagues the courtroom

Reduce the “he said/she said” arguments that take up precious court time and prolong disputes. Often parental disagreements begin small but can magnify over a short period of time. Many arguments begin over simple miscommunication and confusion over details. With the OurFamilyWizard website, every record is stamped with who made it and when it was made. Guessing or speculating over when information was shared is no longer necessary.

Gain a clear picture of parenting disputes through accurate documentation

A clear picture of family plans

Online-shared calendars can help to avoid the pitfalls of parenting from separate households. The problem with phone contact or email is often its narrative format. "Creative language" used between “Football Practice, 3:15 at school” can be detrimental to relationships between parents. Using a shared online calendar can keep both parties informed without any need for discursive prose.

Keep the children out of the middle of divorce conflict

Protecting the Children

Children are the ones most affected by a divorce. Children should be shielded from divorce and they should not be used as messengers. Keep children out of the middle of conflict while keeping them in the loop. The OurFamilyWizard website gives children the ability to stay informed about family issues without getting in the middle.

Get judicial access to a family account

If you would like access to a family's set of accounts, this can be arranged subject to the appropriate permissions.

Helping those who cannot afford the site with a sliding scale and scholarships

We recognise that a large number of families don't have financial resources to obtain a subscription on their own.  We are committed to making OurFamilyWizard a tool that is available to anyone willing to let us help.  However, we also know that divorce is financial draining on everyone, so we want to make sure we are providing scholarships to those who really need it. If parents have enough money to hire a lawyer to continue to fight in court, they can certainly afford the costs of a year's subscription to OurFamilyWizard - less than half an hour of time for most solicitors.

Court Ordered in nearly all 50 states and 6 Canadian provinces.

Hundreds of family law judges, justices, and magistrates in all 50 US states and 6 Canadian provinces are already ordering families to use the OurFamilyWizard website in contested cases.  The reason is simple:  families who go use the OurFamilyWizard website do not return to court nearly as often and in some cases ever.  Providing parents with tools to empower them to handle their situations and issues is a far better long-term solution for the children than having to rely on return trips to court.

Accurate records of what was, and what was supposed to be.

It is important for family courts and judges to be able to distinguish between what was planned to happen and what actually happened.  On the OurFamilyWizard website, it is easy to make this differentiation. There are rules built into the system to protect the integrity of the information you receive.  Additionally, features work in conjunction with each to present the clearest picture of what was supposed to happen versus what really happened.
