Tracking your plan once it is in place is helpful because:
As you enter in the actual parenting time, Custody X Change shows you the calculation of the timeshare percentage. You can also print a report that shows the difference between scheduled parenting time and actual parenting time.
This helps you know what is going on with the schedule, and you have a report that shows if the other parent isn't following the schedule. A report that shows the difference between actual parenting time and scheduled parenting time can help prove your case if you ever want to modify your agreement in court.
If you want to change your parenting time schedule or parenting plan, it is a good idea to keep track of what is currently going on with your plan. This means that you should be tracking the time each parent has with the children and keeping notes about what is going on.
A family court will not usually modify an existing plan unless it can be shown that there have been significant changes that affect the schedule. Changes might include a new job, problems with the other parent meeting the schedule or a child's new school schedule.
When you track actual parenting time to scheduled time, you can present this information in court, in mediation, or negotiation to show what changes are necessary.
With Custody X Change, you can:
Custody X Change gives you an easy way to track your agreement and schedule so that all of your information is organized and easily accessed. This helps you get your agreement modified because you are prepared and have documents to back up why the changes you want are necessary.

With Custody X Change actual-time and journaling features, you will also have documents to show in court, in mediation, or in negotiation as evidence for what is best for your child and the parenting plan that works best for everyone.
