If your family situation is changing rapidly and you do not have an established visitation schedule, Alimentor has you covered. You can simply log actual visits as they occur, without having to create a schedule.
You can use Alimentor as a basic tool to control the budget for child rearing expenses. Enter planned recurring and one‑time expenses (plus set reminders if you like). Then track actual amounts paid, indicate missing payments and disagreements.
Use the built-in document scanner to conveniently add scans of receipts to your records. You can also attach multiple PDF documents to each expense.
Add contact details to your child’s profile in Alimentor to quickly initiate calls directly from the Event Editor. When the call is ended, the date and duration fields are automatically updated.
You can set the actual call duration to zero, to indicate that an attempt to make a call was made, but there was no conversation.
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.
Reports generated in Alimentor can show and compare planned and actual values. In order to visualize differences, both planned and actual visitations (and calls) can be reported in the same calendar.
Thanks to color-coded bars you can see at a glance the duration of events and get better understanding of how your custody schedule aligns with holidays and other important family or business events. Use external and built-in holidays calendars (US, CA, AU). When editing individual visitations, you can always check how these changes affect your timeshare percentage.
Alimentor reports include comprehensive monthly calendars that show all planned, actual and cancelled visitations and calls. Memos and events stored in your device calendars can also be included. Below each calendar you will find the total number of scheduled and actual parenting time hours and nights, timeshare percentage, plus total duration of calls.
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.
Tag your records with the “best interest” 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.
Create easy to read, comprehensive reports containing: color-coded calendars, detailed event listings (parenting time, expenses, calls, memos), summaries and comparisons, photos and attachments. Send them to the other parent or submit to the court.Sample Report

Alimentor uses Apple's CloudKit, part of iCloud, to sync and backup your data and therefore you do not need a separate account/login process.
When iCloud Sync is enabled, Alimentor 2 securely stores your records in a private iCloud container. This level of privacy means that even Alimentor developers can not access your data.
You can grant other Alimentor users read-only access to your data. Users can mutually share data by creating and exchanging invitations with access rights. Learn more...
You can start by tracking past events. Log visitations, expenses, calls. Add photos, scan receipts. 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 gathered information to develop a regular custody schedule and agree how to split child raising costs.
Use recurring events to model your regular visitation schedule. If you grant Alimentor 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 any 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
