Best Interests of the Child

The term “best interests of the child” refers to the deliberation that courts undertake when deciding what type of services, actions, and orders will best serve a child as well as who is best suited to take care of a child. “Best interests” determinations are generally made by considering a number of factors related to the child’s circumstances and the parent or caregiver’s circumstances and capacity to parent.

Use Alimentor to tag your records with the “best interests” factors and generate the “Best Interests of the Child” report. Give this document to your attorney to minimize the time needed to prepare a legal brief.

Improve co‑parenting experience

Help your efforts earn recognition

1. Stop missing out

You can start by tracking past events. Log visitations and expenses (including receipts). Add photos. Store emails and other documents as attachments in PDF format.

After a few weeks start analyzing your timeshare percentage and spending. Read what you have collected and decide if there are any insignificant records that you can remove. Decide what record titles work best. Short, generic titles usually let you better categorize your records. Then determine if you are ready to share your data. You can ask the other parent to install the app and use Alimentor sharing features, or simply begin to regularly send PDF reports.

Use the collected information to develop a regular custody schedule and agree how you will split child raising costs.

Reading Alimentor usage tips will help you efficiently use the app from the start.

2. Start planning

Use recurring events to model your regular visitation schedule. If you allow Alimentor to access your device calendar, you will be able to see how your custody schedule aligns with holidays and other important family or business events. Once your Alimentor calendar setup is complete, review upcoming months and discuss with the other parent how you can reschedule conflicting visitations. Try to work out rules for planning holidays. When editing individual planned visitations, always check how these changes affect your timeshare percentage.

If you are not using Alimentor sharing functionality, then once every few months generate a long term report containing planned visitations calendar and send it to the other parent.

Use iCloud calendar subscriptions to subscribe to a state specific holidays calendar.

Add recurring expenses to monitor your bills.

3. Strengthen control

Establishing a realistic parenting agreement can be challenging. Ensuring compliance with it is usually even a more tedious task.

To let you document and control the gap between your parenting plan and reality, each Alimentor record can store information about both planned and actual visitation dates and hours. For the same reason, you mark planned events that did not occur (no-shows, withheld visitations, missing payments) as cancelled, instead of deleting them. To get the complete picture use the disagreement flag to indicate records that document situations when the other parent did not comply with the established parenting plan. Learn more...

Regularly generate and send Alimentor reports that list and summarize all discrepancies.

If you decide to renegotiate your parenting plan, consider exporting your Alimentor database to a spreadsheet and preparing dedicated statistics.

Build confidence

Writing down your child raising efforts is a deeply satisfying activity. Become more organized. Assess better whether or not you are working towards your goals.

Improve communication

Sharing detailed written information about parenting activities with the other parent regularly is always the best practice. It may encourage a more co‑operative approach.

Going to Court?

Minimize the time needed to prepare a legal brief by generating the “Best Interests of the Child” report. Stay organized and encourage your lawyer to effectively represent you.
