My First 18 Years UX UI Research & Design Case Study

Who was this app for?

This application is for parents who have communication issues. To alleviate the stress of going to court.
This app will present ways to help balance your children’s calendar and make essential payments to agreed finances.

Background

In August, 2017, I had to go to court over and over again to try and get joint rights to my daughter. Fortunately, after spending over $40,000 on Lawyers etc. I thought there would be an easier way to agree on extra – curricular, school, medical for the child. I wanted a way that the two parents who don’t speak with each other will be able to give the child a good life by agreeing on this application.

What Issues Did I as the client have to deal with before designing?

The first issue was trying to understand the users of this app.  To understand that there were plenty of people going to court with many issues. Such as : Parents Dealing with multiple kids, or were still married to their partner collecting child support. We had to interview multiple situations to understand what would be assess them.

What to do if there is more than 1 kid involved?

This application focuses on all the children associated with the custody agreement.
Each Individual Child will have their own profile with batch options to adjust many parenting actions.

Will the kids be able to access this app?

No not at this time , Kids will not be able to use this app.  We are thinking of designing an app for the child at a later time.

What is the most important part of this app?

It’s to give the parents understanding and confidence that they as parents can work together without going to court every other month.  All of the items that need to be discussed outside of court can be assessed in this application.  If there is a disagreement there will be a lawyer to hire who can help make decisions for a small charge.
