“I feel it is an app that is very useful and something I need at the moment.”
Don't let people underestimate your story.
Evidence is key to proving your case.
Here are the 5 steps you should take:
“Easy to use and reassuring to know I can record information as and when it happens.”
“Had trouble remembering info and finding written notes and this app puts it all together in a timeline”
“You just complete the same record layout each time, no complicated questions or tech wizardry needed”
“I am no IT wizard but I found it easy to navigate and self explanatory”
“I’m an organised person and found this app to be very logical and it suits my methodical approach.”

What is ONRECORD?
The only way to prove what’s happened and win your case is to have good evidence. If you don’t make good records you will not be able to prove your case. ONRECORD lets you immediately make clear and detailed records, with the supporting evidence to prove it’s true.
The more you take responsibility for gathering your evidence the better, whether you are acting in person or using a lawyer. It’s difficult, time-consuming and expensive to ask a professional adviser to sort bits of information into a useful document. Take control. ONRECORD is the answer.
1. Upload Records
Make records on the mobile app or the website as soon as things happen and you are safe to do so. Attach supporting evidence and prove your location, time and date. Everything you upload is stored together securely to give the fullest picture of what happened and preserve its value as evidence.
Keep your records organised under unlimited headings and labels.
2. Create a Timeline
Search through your records using our calendar, map and timeline features. Select and download your evidence on our website. Everything you record is securely uploaded and stored in our database. Nobody but you can see it until you decide to share it.
3. Provide Your Evidence
You can allow someone you choose to access your evidence so that they can help you – it might be a lawyer, an advice agency or another professional you trust. Log in on our website to download your records in chronological order, with your attachments, to prepare statements, to use in court or to show to the police.
From Our Blog…
By posting advice, information and news, our blog will help you to deal with potential problems.
Join us to learn more about the family court and its treatment of victims and perpetrators of abuse, coercive control, parental alienation and false allegations. Subscribe to our podcast channel and get reminders to know when we next publish.
Coercive behaviour is defined as “an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim. Coercive control involves repeated, ongoing, intentional tactics which are used to limit the liberty of the victim.
When you represent yourself in a contested family case, in other words without a lawyer, you are a ‘litigant in person’ (LIP). It’s a daunting experience and the best way to cope is to understand what’s going to happen, who is going to do what, what issues are going to be seen as important and what will not be seen as important, get good advice and be organised and make sure you do what’s necessary.
