Two sentences in a Parenting Agreement create immense responsibility:
Both parents are allocated decision making responsibility for each significant issue affecting the child including education, healthcare, religion, and extracurricular activities. Both parents have equal rights, responsibilities, and decision making regarding the well being and best interests of the minor child and shall keep each other informed of all matters related to their child.
Once the paperwork is signed -- it's not over -- a new era of notice and communication has begun. Parenting agreements have obligations to keep each parent informed but maintaining that communication can be exhausting.
Unburden yourself with OurChildInfo. Civil communication is maintained as posts cannot be deleted or backdated. Prove notice of an event was provided. One parent is automatically emailed when a parent posts. Preserve notice of your selected summer parenting time. Put finality to your communications. Post once and give yourself peace. Save or print the log file which contains a complete merged chronology of all posts, documents and photos. Manage your own lives, no third party access.
Preserve the record of communication, questions asked, answered, and avoided. Store court orders, medical bills, photos. Limit, prove, clarify, and resolve conflict.

My case had to be the inspiration for this site. I would go round and round with my ex when it came to things like summer visitation dates, locations, transportation and pickups. This site allowed my ex and I to document the “back and forth” without ever being face-to-face. $7.50 per month is well spent (less than one phone call to my attorney). I highly recommend it!

This website shows that I provided my ex contact information and especially extracurricular and sporting event contacts. I don’t have to upload schedules but can just post the organization or coaches contact information and they are then tasked with following up on sporting schedules. I like that I can then show that I am not to blame and have been providing information.

Using this site to clarify sports schedules has been very helpful. Practices and games get scheduled and cancelled so often that my son ended up missing many of them. I'd get blamed and trying to piece together text messages was not happening.
