MINNEAPOLIS, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The OFW® Family Law Practitioners App for iPad puts their client's calendars, messages, expense histories and more at the practitioner's fingertips. "Professional access allows family law and mental health practitioners access to client communication taking place in real time. It also helps professionals to control mindless email CC's from clients," said Jai Kissoon, CEO of OurFamilyWizard. "Professional access, now available on the iPad, makes managing client communications streamlined and easy."
For over fifteen years, the OurFamilyWizard® website (OFW®) has helped more than 100,000 separated families maintain simple, documented and highly organized communication. When co-parents are prone to conflict, ambiguity or miscommunication can make it difficult for counsel to compile admissible records and get a clear picture of where issues stem from. In response, courts routinely order co-parent communication on OFW® in cases across all 50 states, Washington D.C. and five Canadian provinces.
According to a 2013 report by the US Census Bureau, more than 25 percent of children lived with only one parent while their other parent lived somewhere else. While not every relationship ends in dissolution, many married and unmarried parents find themselves in family court. OFW® is far and away the most robust and widely used toolset to limit potential conflict and litigation. Issues that often lead families into court like parenting time, expense reimbursements and medical decisions are simplified and well documented for professionals working with the family to review.
While some parents are new to OFW®, other parents may already have a long history of communication documented in their existing account. Regardless, the new iPad app lets professionals link with clients with ease. Professionals can set up a new family, request access to one or both parents, or even choose not to have access to a new family. A name and email address is all that is needed to start working with clients.
