Alimentor - Child Custody Log App Reviews

So helpful!

I just love this app! After hand writing my journals and notes for the past 4 years with my boyfriend, this is just the app I’ve been looking for! I love that it compares scheduled vs actual and tells you the difference between the two. I also LOVE the percentage calculator!! Only things I wish it had were a website for PC and a way to take school hours out of the parenting time. School hours are neither our hours nor her hours, so they shouldn’t count towards anyone’s percentage. Of course, make that adjustable to add in and take away as needed. Other than those two things, I am so thankful for this app! I can see many hours of transcribing in my future!

Great app but would be better if we could add dates on a computer

Any possibility this can allow us to add dates on a computer and not just our phones. Makes it more difficult if you need to add multiple dates and easier if your in front of a computer.

Please fix

I LOVE this app but something changed last year that makes this app way less useful & I finally decided to say something. When I track parenting time my ex is one color and I’m another (awesome) but I used to be able to start my time when I got my son back and leave it open ended until a month later when he saw his father. Not I can only do a start time if I put a finish time. Lots of parents don’t know yet when the time the have their kid will end. Sometimes my time is two straight months. It was great before bc it then charted really accurately what percentages we each had active parenting time. Please address this 🙏🏼


This app has helped me so significantly. It makes recording time with my daughter easy. It also helps reporting that much easier. I can’t say enough how much this app has helped. I’m a very proud primary father because of it! Thanks Alimentor! The only thing this app doesn’t have is a way to edit logs on your MacBook. I wish it did.

Love this!

I love love love this app! I just wish there was a website interface to make it easier to add documents and make data entry faster, ability to input custody schedule ie. even/odd year holidays, spring/summer break schedules and ability to choose the year when entering dates. I’m finding I have to keep scrolling dates back to post things that happens later than the current date.

This is it!

Don’t pay for the other overpriced co-parenting app. Takes a little getting use to (just like anything else) but overall all you need so that you can plan your co-parenting life. Highly recommended.

Great App

This app is great but it would be even better if it would allow you to use it in an online format and/ or computer software

This app is so amazing!

All it would need would be unlimited photo uploads and it would be a complete unstoppable app. Still, it’s exactly what I need. Thank you for making an awesome app.

Love the App

Love the app it had been a huge help being a full time single father. If you can during the next update add a section for phone cal tracking it would be amazing.

Best app ever

The only thing that I wish this app had was the ability to get online and/or something in order to see it on a laptop for those of us that don’t have a iPad or have a need to see on a bigger screen. I LOVE this app. The ability to upload record of appearance is fantastic in addition to being able to see how much time the coparent is with your child and what the planned timeshare vs actual is. I love the report feature and at this time cant think of one single this app doesn’t have - except the ability to “lock” transactions. I would prefer that once a photo and the actual/planned/canceled information was in that you not be able to update the information anymore. Thumbs on an iPhone/iPad can be tricky and push the incorrect days. Plus if you are editing a reoccurring event it often tends to edit the primary record and not the final record. Thats a problem.

This app is so helpful

This app really helps me stay organized and keep everything together.

Great app

Great app. It really helps me keep track of time and money spent.

The best custody app

Simply the best app for tracking custody of your kids. You can add all the expenses and take a picture of check. Reports really helps you to be sure how it was, when your ex started to lying. Also, you pay once. No in-app purchase, no adds. Thank you!

Good idea difficult to use

In concept this is a great app. In use it's ok. I find I have trouble entering custody times. It would be a lot easier if I ONLY tracked my time but I need to enter both parents times. The ability to just enter for example a two hour visit overlapping my ex's time (when I pick my son up for an activity for example) and have it just give me the option to take that time from her and move to me would be great. That's not how this app works it will tell you your times overlap and won't allow you to save it. Instead you need to shorten the other parents time, create a second entry for the other parent for after your activity then after that is done you can enter your little two hour visit in the middle. Lots of extra steps to get this app to work and I honestly just don't have that much time. I was using a web based program before, clunky on the phone but I'm going back to it.

In love

This app is amazing .... I wish I could access it on computer as well but it makes everything so much easier and organized

Great app!

Very simple and user friendly ! Helps keep track of all time and expenses. Worth the purchase price to be able to export data and log changes within seconds !

So worth the $

I honestly never take the time to write reviews for apps. Though, this app is SO worth the money. It is so helpful for noting parenting arrangements (especially when they change all the time), payments, and notes. It is very user-friendly. You can add photos to memos, note when there are disagreements, download reports as Excel or PDF's. I cannot possibly list all of the capabilities. Do not waste your $ on other apps which charge you monthly/yearly, etc. This app has all you need and more! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Excellent parenting tracker

Planned, actual or cancelled. Notes, expenses and most important , efficient feature of this app, seamless reports!

Amazing app and support!

This is the first review I have written on any application and over the years I have used hundreds. Alimentor helps me to keep everything organized in multiple areas so I can effectively coparent. The support I have received has also been outstanding! Very fast responses and extremely knowledgeable. I could not be happier and highly recommend this application to anyone. Although separation is never easy, Alimentor has been my saving grace. Great job and thank you so much for producing such a wonderful application!!!

Look no further!

Im a full time parent and I have been looking for a single application that can keep track of all of my child's timeshare and easily store it. This application does that and so many other things I didn't even know I needed! It keeps track of expenses, notes, even ties pictures to certain time share events! All of that in a GORGEOUS design and easy to read reports! I don't usually do reviews but trust me, get this app! I recommend it to anyone I come across because it is THAT good.

Love love love

I love this! Perfect for Keeping record of things related to coparenting. So happy I found this. I wish there was a way to show things like When you bathed your child, what meals you fed him (in my case, I'm feeding my child meals that the father is supposed to do but won't, like dropping off a hungry toddler to me in the morning)

Perfect for that un-trusting Ex

For those who have that problem with their Ex who is always placing blame and is untrustworthy, well this is the perfect tool!! Document, document, document!! In court it's always "he said versus she said," well this app will help you keep track of all the receipts for clothes, shoes, diapers, child support payments and etc. The hard part is sticking with the program and keeping track of everything from time spent to expense's spent. I take pictures of everything and log it in this app and when that day comes when I take my ex back to court to get full custody of my child I will have the documentation. Good luck for those of you who are in similar situation like mine!


This has been a lifesaver! This is the only app I found that tracks everything you need when it comes to documentation. And the report output is perfect!

Low-cost easy to use app :)

App keeps track of parenting time and expenses without needing a monthly subscription like other websites and apps. Easy to use. Customizable reports. Worth the money.

Super helpful

As an employee at a software company, I appreciate a developer who seems to understand his audience so well, and is so responsive to requests and questions. The new calendar integrations look great, too! Looking forward to a desktop app later this year!

Best tool for tracking things as a single dad

This thing is great, keeps tracks and highlights disagreements, can set up through this to track your support payments, ability to upload pics. Attorneys tell us to always keep a diary and a lot of us forget to do this after the first hearing or after the initial/final mediation. Lord knows you'll find yourself back in court again so please keep a diary. This app even gives percentage times you're with your child. I've fought hard to get a fair amount of time with my daughter, and that was before having this. Had I had this I'd have had a much better collection of things. This is sooo handy to have and super easy to use. It's well worth the low price that I can't recall what I paid. I'd have paid double had I known how good this truly is.

This app is just what I was looking for

I apsolutly love this app. I works perfect for keeping track of our visitation time and I love I can included pictures and keep track of expenses. It's ver convenient that I can sync the app to all of my devices. Also perfect for court documentation since you are able to export the report to adobe.

Great App

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars because, as great as the app is and easy to use, it would be great if there was a web version available to use on the computer Sometimes its easier to enter info and print reports from a computer Maybe a thought for the future!!

What a life saver

After a crazy divorce this is the perfect tool to keep records. Especially after my ex is trying to say he is getting time that he isn't. Thank you for this app!!!!

Best app

For anyone who would like to keep track of custody as well as all the financial ties that go with it this app is for you it makes everything easy to categorize

Takes the place of calendars and multiple notebooks

This app makes the process of documenting so easy! From parents or guardians names that are color coded, to the percentage of time each child(s) are with a person. I recently starting using the notes section in replacement of one of my many "custody notebooks" and while I have not done this yet, the option to print out a report of the color coded time percentages is there. I don't have a complaint, this app is very convenient

Great app to keep track of Visitation/Holiday schedules

I have been using this app to keep track of everything (visitation, dr appointments, holidays, etc.). Putting in the days and setting up the reoccurring schedules was confusing at first but after awhile I'm getting better at it. Overall it's pretty awesome. Wish it worked with my Apple Watch for notification reminders.


Great app. It had everything I need to co-parent. I do wish they had a website that linked to the app, that is the only reason I took 2 stars off.

Great tool!

This app is everything you need in case you find yourself litigating with your ex in court for custody or child support. Since in California child support is calculated based on real parenting time, everything you need to do is to print out your calendars with parenting time/percentage from the app and attach it to your declaration/motion/RFO. Worked well for me.

Most Versatile App for Child Custody

I have tried many apps on custody calendar creation and this is the only one that allows me the flexibility I need for my complex schedule. This is vital and has been a huge asset in dealing with custom timing and calendar creation for my kids. The customer support is second to none and the ability to generate reports on the fly is a huge help when talking about custody numbers. This app is a hit and not having to pay a monthly fee to uphold my schedule is a bonus. This is a winner and all ideas and improvement ideas are sent directly to the developer for consideration. 👍🏻

A must!

I was so relieved when I found this app. Absolutely thee most important tool during my divorce process. Everything you need is in this app. Beautifully organized. Sharing options are perfect. Saving options are outstanding. Every single detail was thought out. Absolutely parent made. So grateful for this app!

Love this App!!

Simply amazing! So well done. I'm so impressed that I mentioned this to a family law lawyer. This should be a top recommended tool by them to other clients.

Better safe than sorry!

This app works extremely well and tracks everything a single parent needs for court!

A must have!

Awesome for tracking up to divorce and probably after. Makes it easy to show hard numbers on care provided by each parent, rather than guessing.


This makes tracking any and everything related to my child stupid easy. Can't wait to see this app continue to develop! Instant response time from developer with questions and feedback, keep up the good work!!!

Can't live without this app!

I've been using Alimentor for almost a year now. It is invaluable for not only tracking actual time spent for each parent with our child, but also for documenting incidents of special interest and things one might need down the road in custody disputes. For example, if my son has a new bruise at school when I pick him up, I snap a photo with few notes for future reference. If he has a bed wetting accident, I log that too. If he tells me of something questionable that happens when he's not with me, I make a note of that as well. You get the idea. This is all very valuable data over the long run. If his mother asks about any bed wetting, I can quickly look it up and tell her when he's had accidents at my house. If she asks about a rash when she picks him up, I can reference my diary memo in Alimentor to give her the details. So, I use Alimentor for time tracking, special incidents of note, and anything else that I may need in any potential disputes in the future. I don't have to rely on memory or what I think has been happening.

Excellent app

I'm not in a child custody situation (thank goodness) but this app is really great at tracking and tallying all of my expenditures on my kids. Excellent app.

5 Star App

As a father this app allowed me to document the time and money spent on my children. These theory's allowed me to show the court my efforts and saved me a ton of money in child support!

Great app

Nice way to stay organized and keep records

Great, Easy to use

Love this app. User friendly and creates very useful reports. I'm an attorney and practice family law and I use this to track visitation etc with my ex. I also recommend it to clients who need to track custody time.

Document document document

Wish we had found this years ago. Thank you developer!! So so useful!

Great App

Love the Reports easy to use and log

Super-Easy Record Keeping!

Makes it very easy to keep records with photos of paperwork, receipts, etc.


Finally an app that keeps actual and planned parenting time. It can also be printed and viewed in iBooks. LOVE THIS!!!
