1. Make sure you document clearly the pickup and drop off times for each exchange.

2. You should really introduce to the other party an offer to settle to coordinate these discussions using Our Family Wizard. That way you don't have to talk on the phone but, you can arrange pickup and drop off times well in advance on the family calendar. Furthermore, all the changes and negotiations for changing the times can be done through their calendar system and it is all tracked by a reputable and often court ordered service provider.

3. You should also make an offer to settle integrating point #2 and a stable access schedule where the pick up and drop off times and the location that this happens at is clearly and explicitly stated.

For example something like this:

In accordance with Rule 18 of the Family Law Rules this Offer to Settle is presented for your consideration to resolve the access, scheduling and exchange location for our children:

1. Both parents shall register for and bear their own expenses for an account with the software platform known as Our Family Wizard. (Tools to simplify shared child custody. - Our Family Wizard - child custody, parenting time)

2. All communications unless an emergency requiring medical intervention shall communicate only through Our Family Wizard.

3. The children shall be picked up on DayOfTheWeek at SomeTime by the father and returned on DayOfTheWeek at SomeTime by the father. In the event there is a need to change this schedule, time or location either parent shall notify the other 72 hours in advance via Our Family Wizard and the other parent shall respond to this request in 24 hours via Our Family Wizard. In the event that the parents are unable to agree to the exchange of the children, location and time shall adhere to paragraph 3 of this agreement.

Something like that... I posted a letter in detail for Nadia a while back that covered the whole "Our Family Wizard" communications in much more detail that may be helpful:

Good Luck!
