I have found clients and other agents to be sceptical initially when I have mentioned OurFamilyWizard, but when I have discussed it fully and others have looked into it further, as well as being aware of the support from the courts of use of the app, it has been received well. My client who has recently used the app is in fact no longer a client as it has helped the parties communicate appropriately, and solved many of the issues that were arising between them previously. I have found the option of solicitors being able to access the app has also assisted as it appears to focus client’s minds and ensure that parties are being less reactive in their communication and really putting thought into the ongoing relationship and impact upon the child of communication between the parties. I’d highly recommend OurFamilyWizard to any family law practitioner as it’s another great option to have in your “tool kit” to assist clients.

I was a bit sceptical as to whether using the app would really make a difference, as we’d tried to use other apps and email which had ended up in difficulty and to be honest had made the situation worse. My solicitor suggested using OurFamilyWizard due to the various additional features it has and essentially due to the accountability with our respective solicitors being able to access the app and anything on it downloaded for court proceedings if the need arose. Since utilising the app, it has made a huge difference. We are actually able to communicate with each other civilly and it reduces the ability for either of us to message in anger or upset, which was causing some of the problems via email and other apps. Neither of us are actually instructing our solicitors anymore as due to moving forward with the app we have reached a point where we can communicate in a better way, and the issues around handovers and the time we both spend with our daughter have reduced significantly. I’d recommend the app to any parents who are in a similar situation as it has made a huge difference to our situation.
OurFamilyWizard is a vital tool in helping parents break the cycle of high conflict communication. The app’s simple, accessible yet sophisticated interface ensures all messages are in one place, which is a game changer for vulnerable clients, and its tone meter actively de-escalates heated discussions. The team are supportive, responsive and always helpful. I could not recommend it highly enough.
I have found this app to be invaluable. It has stopped most of the communication issues I have had previously. I like the fact it is fully transparent in terms of when you have read your messages and response times. Also the tone checker has been useful, it just makes you think about getting to the point and taking the emotion out of comms. Noticeable on both sides. Certainly for my situation I would say it is a must have.
I’ve found the professional account very beneficial – it has helped reduce legal costs for parents I work with because I am able to see what has been said in a straight forward way rather than trawl through messages across several different platforms. It also means they feel more secure communicating with their co-parent knowing that it is an entirely secure messaging platform. Since getting my professional account, another parent has signed up to OFW and another parent who was sceptical about the app is now keen to use it and is asking the court to order use of OFW at a final hearing. After speaking with a UK team member about the features and functions, I now feel far more confident when talking to parents about how OFW works and how it can benefit their family.
As a divorced co-parent myself, this is the tool I wish I had known about back during my own separation. Now as one of the UK’s leading Divorce Coaches, OurFamilyWizard is one of the first and primary practical resources I share with individuals and couples I work with, who need to find a way to simplify and streamline their co-parenting relationship.
Whether contentiousness is running high in the early days of your divorce, or even if it’s months and years down the line, we can all find ourselves struggling to keep track of all those digital communications with our ex. Text, calls, email, WhatsApp, social media, maintenance transfers, etc. OurFamilyWizard can help reduce stress and anxieties in our digital lives and those missed communications, by centralising everything all in one place.
In my professional capacity I have witnessed 10’s if not 100’s of clients now, who have found this straightforward product to be one of the main opportunities to help turn down the temperature dial on those difficult situations and has afforded them the choice to find a new and better way to work together, putting their children "in the centre, not the middle.
I think there are plenty of us who know families that would greatly benefit from the being able to communicate in a more productive, and less antagonistic, way. For professionals, the reporting feature is a great tool to use in statements and correspondence with the co-parent’s legal adviser on matters where contact arrangements still might not be going to plan. I cannot wait to get going!
OurFamilyWizard is a great app and tool to genuinely foster a healthy and positive Co parenting relationship. I have recommended this app to so many of my clients and even for the couples who had really strained and fractured relationships, communicating through this app really helped them build a new foundation to Co-parent . Honestly it’s been a game changer in family law 🙌🏽
I use OurFamilyWizard with my clients who are going through a difficult time communicating with their ex-partner; it is an emotional and financial game changer. In my experience, OurFamilyWizard removes unnecessary letters being sent to the other party’s solicitor as the content that these letters raise can be discussed between the parents using the message feature in a recorded way. Once they have granted access to me as their solicitor, I can review their activity for free at my own convenience. One of these letters usually costs more than the yearly subscription, so it is a no-brainer for parents.
The OurFamilyWizard app is a fantastic tool for helping separated families co-parent. Being able to keep communication, diaries and records in one place is invaluable. Clients have reported how helpful the app is in improving communication, organising arrangements and information, and ultimately reducing conflict.
