1. Present options to the other parent

It can be difficult to express to the other parent what you want for your children. Showing your preferred parenting plan and a visual schedule helps you explain your concerns. It also helps identify where you have common ground, which helps parents work toward a settlement agreement.

You should bring your Custody X Change documents whenever you discuss parental responsibility and time-sharing with the other parent, whether in informal negotiations, mediation, collaborative law sessions, etc.

2. Track actual parenting time

Throughout your case, you'll need to track exactly how much time your child spends with each parent. Judges, mediators, attorneys, social investigators and collaborative law teams want to know who cares for your children hour by hour.

After your case, you'll need to continue tracking parenting time to ensure that both parents are following the court order.

The Custody X Change parenting time tracker lets you record when a parent is late for a pickup, cancels a visit and more. The app compares actual parenting time to the planned time and calculates discrepancies.

This information is crucial for calculating child support and deciding time-sharing disputes, especially when a temporary order isn't working or you want to modify a final order.

3. Organize other information for your case

Organizing all the evidence you need for your case can feel impossible. But Custody X Change tools keep you on top of it all by letting you instantly retrieve information.

Use the app's parenting journal to note important dates, interactions, data, etc. You can upload files like text message screenshots or medical records, then give each item tags for generating reports on specific issues.

The app's expense tracker is just as critical. Track what you spend on your child in various categories, then add notes and upload files like receipts or photos.

4. Present information to the court

In hearings and trials, you need to show the judge or general magistrate as much information as possible so they can understand your family's situation.

Presenting organized and well-prepared documents, like your Custody X Change parenting plan and calendar, not only provides necessary information but also demonstrates your responsibility. If the judge agrees with your plan and schedule, those arrangements may become part of your final judgment.

5. Cut down on paperwork

Many family law forms require a parenting plan — either one you are proposing or one you and the other parent have agreed on.

Attach your Custody X Change parenting plan and time-sharing calendar so you can skip those sections of your court paperwork, saving you time and giving you flexibility.

6. Implement final orders

It's essential that you follow court orders to the letter. Failure to comply can result in contempt of court charges and possible jail time. Let Custody X Change help you.

The color-coded calendars with optional push notifications help you stick to your time-sharing order. Meanwhile, the actual parenting time tracker, parenting journal and expenses tracker help you keep accurate records.

Before, during and after your case, take advantage of Custody X Change technology to keep your child's best interests front and center.
