Frequently Asked Questions:

General:

Can I access my calendar and other data from my phone / computer?

Yes, you can access all of your data at any time, from any device or computer. Everything is stored online, in the cloud.

Do you have an app?

Yes, we have apps for Windows, iOS, and Android, but you can't find them in the app stores. We are using a new method that installs directly from the browser. You'll see an install button once you create an account.

If I upgrade later, can I get a credit from my current purchase?

Yes, we give you a credit based on how much time is remaining on your most recent purchase.

Can I cancel my subscription if I'm done using it?

Yes, you simply login and click the "Cancel subscription" button in your account settings. Even after canceling, you still have access to your paid features until your license expires.

What's your refund policy?

If you're unhappy with our product for any reason, you have 30 days to get a full refund. Contact us and we'll take care of it right away.


Parents:

Can I share my calendar with the other parent, kids or my attorney?

Yes, you can share your calendar, activities and expenses with the other parent. You can share your calendar and activities with your kids. And you can share all of your data with your attorney, including your journal, parenting plan, and actual time.

Does the other parent need to purchase if I share with them?

If you link accounts with the other parent, they can access the shared calendar, activities, and expenses. However, the other parent won't be able to use any of the other paid features without upgrading, and won't have full editing capabilities without purchasing.


Legal professionals:

Can I share the calendars and plans I create with my clients?

Yes. Your client will get an invitation to create a free account, and they will be able to view the data, with minor editing capabilities. If they purchase they will have full control over the data. You can also see a notification when they make a change.

Can I share my login with another person in my same firm?

Your account is only allowed to work on your own clients. For example, you can share your login with your paralegal, but not with another attorney in your firm.

I'm a family court judge, can I really use it on the bench for free?

Yes, we let family court judges use the Pro Gold Lifetime for free. Create a free account using your official email address and then send us a message.

Is this a tax-deductible expense?

Yes. If you are working as a legal professional, the cost of this software is 100% tax deductible as a business expense (and in many cases billable to the current clients).


Parenting plans:

Is the software's parenting plan accepted by the courts where I live?

While there is no universal form that's guaranteed to be accepted in every court, Custody X Change's parenting plan document has been accepted by courts in all 50 US states, Canada, Australia, and many other countries. The parenting plan can be easily modified to fit your situation and your court's requirements or simply included as an attachment.


Legacy PC-only software:

I purchased the Windows desktop software some time ago. Where is my account?

This web-app is not compatible with our Windows-only desktop software; it's a completely different system. We sold that product from 2005 through 2019. If you'd like to use the web-app you can purchase it, but you don't have to. As a customer of the Windows-only desktop software, you can continue to use that for as long as you'd like.

I'm still using the legacy Windows-only software but my computer crashed or I got a new one, how can I reinstall?

Install the download, and then activate your purchase again for free. "File -> Updates -> Activate Purchase." Your activation login never expires, and you can re-install the software as many times as you want.

I can't find my saved information, where did it go?

It's saved as a file on your local computer, probably in the folder "My Documents\Custody X Change\". If you can't find it there, have Windows search your computer for ".cxc" files. If you switched computers or your computer crashed, you'll have to retrieve it from the old computer, if possible.

I can't login to the PC-only customer portal, where did it go?

The global navigation links to our web-app, but you can still use the legacy PC-only software login. There's not much there though, mostly just the ability to change your password to re-activate the software.
