Common sense communication regarding education, health, religion, or extracurricular, often devolves into intentional miscommunication between separated parents. Most family law related post-trial contempt petitions are based in miscommunication. The client can prove that information was provided, and is protected from an accusation that information was withheld. Clients will have a resource for proof of all their parenting obligations. Should court become necessary, they will have a clear, complete, chronologically merged, dated, time-stamped history of all communication.

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!
