Tracking Actual Parenting Time: Overview

The actual parenting time tracker empowers you when your co-parent doesn't stick to the custody schedule. It shows you how much parenting time you actually get compared to how much you were supposed to get.

It displays the same calendars as the "calendar" tab, but it lets you mark deviations without affecting the original calendars.

When to track actual parenting time

Use this tool when you want to compare what happened to what was planned. For example, you might make an entry because your co-parent:

  • Arrived late
  • Canceled at the last minute
  • Didn't let you see your children

If you agreed with the other parent on a one-time change, or if you decided to swap time evenly, you'd probably mark that under the "calendar" tab instead. In these cases you don't need to prove a pattern or see the effect on your parenting time; you just need to know when to exchange your child.

Who can see your actual parenting time tracker

Only you and your legal professional (if you've linked accounts with them) can access your actual parenting time tracker.

Your co-parent, child and anyone else you link accounts with will not be able to see the time you track, even if they can see the original calendar. This helps prevent conflict.
