If you are currently finding it to be nearly impossible to communicate with your ex regarding your children – trust me, you are not alone! Oftentimes, during a divorce or break-up, emotions run high and children can be used as pawns to exact revenge against the other parent. You may have tried, and tried, and tried again, but you just can’t communicate with your ex to resolve matters concerning the children. Don’t worry. It isn’t the end of the world. This is exactly why Our Family Wizard was created.
Our Family Wizard is a tool, recommended by courts and judges throughout the country, created to help parents communicate about what matters most – their children. We recommend the use of Our Family Wizard in many divorce and custody matters we handle at our firm. Our Family Wizard is available as a website and a phone app, that provides a neutral platform for parent (and even age-appropriate child) communication to eliminate the emotion. Whether your goal is to cease using children as the “messengers” or “middle-men,” eliminate miscommunication between you and your ex altogether, or avoid basic confusion regarding child visitation schedules and extracurricular activity events, Our Family Wizard can handle that all for you.
Our Family Wizard not only provides you with a calendar where you can set up visitation, shared holidays, activities, it also can be used to send requests to alter the schedule, switch days, pay shared expenses, and even share academic and medical documentation. Further, children can participate and be permitted access to their own visitation calendar, so that, when they are at the appropriate age to access this feature, may rely on predictability and up-to-date changes to their visitation schedule with each parent.
We always look for solutions to assist our clients in strengthening the co-parenting relationship through improved communication. And, like I said before, we highly recommend Our Family Wizard to almost all of our clients in contentious custody matters. The cost of Our Family Wizard is $99 per year per parent. Further, they do offer military discounts, and even scholarships, as well. If you have any questions about this program, would like more information on co-parenting resources, or if you have a current custody and visitation situation that you would like to speak with an attorney about, give us a call at 757-656-1000 or email us at email@example.com. We are happy to help!
