Ct. of Appeals Okays Use of Family Wizard Software to help parents deal with child care issues.

The Court of Appeals discusses favorably software that can be used by separated parents to help manage their communications regarding child care issues.   The Kenton Court had ordered the parents to use this software from Family Wizard.   Links and case name below.

 Telek argues that the family court acted outside its authority in ordering the parties to purchase Family Wizard software at a cost of one hundred dollars ($100) per year to each party. Telek contends that the software is unnecessary and not in the best interests of the child.

 

…the software provides time-stamped documentation regarding the parties’ communication, allows the guardian ad litem and the trial court to monitor the parties’ communications, provides interactive family scheduling and information management, and provides

secure storage of medical history and emergency contacts. In light of the high degree of conflict present in this case, we agree with the guardian ad litem that the family court was within its authority and discretion to order the use of this software.
