Our Family Wizard

The leading app for more peaceful co-parenting

When I was going through my divorce, a couple really big issues were: we had a very hard time communicating with each other in a civil way because there was so much anger and resentment at the time, and my ex was extremely resentful about paying child support because he didn’t see specifically what the money was being used for.

Wow, do I wish I would have known about OurFamilyWizard at that time. It would have solved so many problems, and made our divorce much more amicable. Why? Because it offers features like tracking expenses (where you both can see exactly how money is being spent), a calendar–so there’s no “You purposely didn’t tell me about Johnny’s softball game because you didn’t want me to come,” and on-the-record documentation of texts, so you and your ex are forced to be civil in your emails and texts.

OurFamilyWizard is the leading co-parenting app.

It was created by Paul Volker, who went through a divorce and saw the needs firsthand!

I am so proud to be partnering with such a wonderful company, whose mission (like mine) is to help people go through a divorce with less stress and more ease.

What specifically is OurFamilyWizard?

The app, which is extremely reasonably priced, offers features that include:

1. A calendar, which simplifies your parenting schedules and with one click, you can request or accept a schedule change from your spouse!
2. Documented messaging. Instead of communicating through text or email, you communicate on the app. It documents everything, so if you ever have to go back to court, it’s on the record. This feature keeps everyone civil and respectful.
3. An expense tracker. This shows each parent what you spent on each of your children. You can even attach receipts receipts and send payments to each other using its internal secure payment system, OFWpay. It takes away any animosity for child support payments because both parents have documented expenses.
4. The Info Bank, which securely stores: medical histories, insurance information, emergency contacts, school schedules, photos and more.
5. ToneMeter. This helps keep communication respectful. How? It flags emotionally charged phrases so you can rethink what you are about to send, which can prevent conflict and negative emotions.

There’s even more that OurFamilyWizard offers to support co-parents! Check out their website to learn more.

The app saved us

I can’t say enough good things about this app and website!! Me and the mother of my children have been separated since our sons were 1 yrs old and before getting this app we had a lot of challenges communicating on major topics. This app saved us and always made this clear and simplistic.

Conflicts have become far less frequent

OurFamilyWizard has been a H U G E blessing since being court ordered to use it. It has brought undeniable accountability to co-parenting my son, and the conflicts have become far less frequent. As a direct result, I have watched my son flourish and become confident and loving of both myself and his mother. No further need for counseling and a complete 180 with his academics.

Unburdens parents from stressful co-parenting

This app massively unburdens parents from stressful co-parenting situations. Everything is logged, clearly organized, viewable by a judge, a great way to distance yourself from a toxic co-parent and keep things simple and streamlined for the benefit of the child.

A great way to start co-parenting effectively

OurFamilyWizard is a great way to start co-parenting effectively especially if you are dealing with a combative parent. It helps monitor and store all the messages for future references. I have had great experiences with it thus far and more than likely will be continuing to use it for the long run!
