    I love this binder! The fact that it’s a PDF allowed me to print exactly what I wanted, and the number of copies needed. I will be able to ultimately organize the sections in whichever order our attorney prefers (if it ever comes to that/ hopefully it does not!). I am so happy I found this.

    Navigating custody court is a daunting task. This resource is a must have for keeping everything organized! The best part is how customizable it is and the ability to print off multiple copies since it’s a PDF download. Such a headache relief!

    I absolutely fell in love with this binder! Not only is adorable, but it helped me put together and organize all of our court documents, in a way that was easy to read and understand. I would highly recommend this to everyone who goes through the family court system, as it makes it so much easier to walk into a courtroom and show your documentation organized in one place.

    Helps me keep extra organized with our most recent court order. Necessity when you are dealing with a very difficult and manipulative ex.

    Thank you!

    Absolutely perfect. I am currently going through a custody battle with my oldest daughters dad. So I use this to keep track of everything. There are many things in here I didn’t even think of tracking. This binder is perfection 🥰

    This download was so helpful to us for organizing our child’s records. It was thoughtfully prepared, attractive and included most of the categories I needed for filing our custody/related documents. Over all, I’m really happy I purchased this!

    There were just a couple of (small) downsides:

    1.)The logo is stamped right on the front of what will be your binder cover. This is fine for personal use, but in my opinion it’s not terribly professional for use in actual legal hearings or custodial evaluations/ just keep that in mind if you’re picky like me.

    2.) You may have to create additional categories/chapters. This was only a small inconvenience for us/ especially after considering that no blended/family is equal. We had to create a couple of files that were more tailored for us, for example: a file on correspondence with our child’s school staff and a miscellaneous file for her journal entries and drawings etc..

    Again, this is a really awesome pre/made resource and it will undoubtedly save you time and make you feel organized! what better use do you have for twenty/five bucks, huh?

    I can’t believe how resourceful this binder has been in such a short period of time. My husband went from feeling overwhelmed to feeling he had regained some control with the custody situation he’s facing.
