Slamming doors, shouting matches, and hurt feelings can be a thing of the past. Contentious divorce cases bring out the worst in even the best people. No matter how angry, betrayed, or depressed you or your spouse feel, the toll a bitter divorce takes on children is magnified ten-fold.
The parents who used to read their children bedtime stories have been replaced by strangers who seem to only communicate through clenched jaws and gritted teeth. To combat that creeping alienation, family lawyers and courts have a new tool in their toolbox called "Our Family Wizard."
Our Family Wizard is a website available to anyone with an Internet connection, and it provides parents in even the most difficult cases with the tools needed to organize shared parenting time and to reduce conflict. The website is designed to facilitate communication and to reduce the stress of that communication by providing a safe space to direct contact both during and after divorce proceedings.
Our Family Wizard's calendar program allows parents to share activities, trade days, and create parenting plans without the stress of having to make a phone call that could lead to yet another fight.
The expense log provides parents with the resources needed to track shared expenses, make online payments directly from a checking or savings account, and provide detailed expense records. By making and tracking payments through the Family Wizard website, the risk of a "he said, she said" argument is virtually eliminated.
In the digital age, bad feelings can be communicated instantly and one of the greatest pitfalls for divorcing parents is an email sent in a moment of anger. As soon as the "Send" button is hit it is already too late. The resentment is broadcast and the fires of anger and resentment are stoked once again. The Our Family Wizard website works to eliminate this problem by providing an emotional spell check. Key words are flagged and tone is gauged before an email is sent, allowing a parent to rethink what they say before they say it.
Life does not have to be difficult during or after a divorce. The Our Family Wizard website helps prevent unexpected disputes or accusations by providing a clear and accurate documentation that cannot be tampered with.
