Its a parenting time tracker. I was wondering if anyone has used it ? It seems like a good program.

I have it. Great for keeping track of Parenting Time, gives the percentage, good for keeping track of mileage, expenses, denials, calculating Child Support and so on.

Great graphics which judges are suppose to like, visuals.

One tip, I also keep documentation in the three ring binder, hand written in ink, do not skip spaces. Depends on judge which they prefer. Older judges like the handwritten stuff, younger judges might like the Optimal better.

My trial has been postponed so much, the judge may never see this program. So far, the handwritten stuff is in as evidence.

I've evaluated it and think it's well worth the money for anyone in current litigation or about to enter it.

The current version is very usable, and it wasn't available years ago when I spent a ton of time developing a complex Excel spreadsheet to do 20% of what OPTIMAL now offers in tracking, journaling, and reporting.
