Our Family Wizard

There are many apps to help divorced parents keep track of parenting plans, children’s activities and other key information. Clients say most work well.

I especially like Our Family Wizard. This website is very comprehensive. Parents can coordinate calendars and expenses, create message boards, as well as share and store important family information, such as emergency contacts and vital information. Parents can select how often to receive notifications, such as instantly or once a day. There’s also an app for Android and iPhones. And it’s very easy to use.

Our Family Wizard is available at It costs about $100 per year per parent, and kids’ accounts (to see restricted information) are free.
