Sharing, Saving and Printing Your Parenting Plan

Your parenting plan is automatically saved in the Custody X Change app. Pick from the options below when you're ready to share it, save it outside the app or print it.

To make changes to your document first, choose from the five ways to edit your parenting plan with Custody X Change.

Linking your attorney's account

The best way to share your plan with a law professional is to link their Custody X Change account.

When you link with a professional account, the professional can view and edit your plan. They also get access to the rest of your account, including your calendars and journal.

To link, head to your account settings. (Click the user icon in the top right corner of the app, then select "account settings.")

Scroll down to the linked accounts section, and click where it says "change." Then, select the "share" button from the professional column.

Type in your professional's information, and send your invitation. When he or she accepts your invite, the two accounts will be automatically linked. The professional can also initiate the process.

To manage your linked accounts and notifications at any time, return to your account settings.

Saving your plan as a Word document

Saving your plan as a Word document allows you (and whomever you send it to) to make highly-specific edits to the layout and wording. This can be useful if your court has unique requirements for parenting plans.

Start by clicking the "parenting plan" tab.

Then hit the "print preview" button in the top right corner.

You'll be taken to a preview of how your document will look when printed.

In the top right corner, click "save as Word document."

A download will begin automatically; when it’s finished, you can open the document with Microsoft Word or another text editor.

Saving your plan as a PDF

A PDF file looks the same regardless of your software, hardware or operating system. This makes PDF a great format to share your parenting plan in.

To save your plan as a PDF, follow the steps for saving as a Word document (above). When you get to the print preview page, click "save as PDF." A download will begin automatically.

Printing your plan

To print your plan, follow the steps for saving as a Word document (above). When you get to the print preview page, click "print" in the top right corner.

This will pull up printing options based on the device you're using (like paper size, number of copies, etc.) Make sure the printer you want to use is selected, and hit "print."

Custody X Change is software that creates parenting plans you can share and print.
