To avoid this type of break-up of your message, you may wish to consider using email.

You will need to contact customer service at with the following information:

The edited message must have occurred within the last 7 days, your complaint must specifically state the date and time the message was sent, what the issue is with what came through, how you think it should be edited and what should or should not have been taken out and why. If it is with something you received, please submit that and state what you believe should have been edited.

Please allow 7 business days for a reply from our executive team.

8) What if the other party refuses to sign up.

Unfortunately that is something that you would need to address with the Court. However, if you contact ProperComm, we may be able to provide you with a shell Motion requesting the Court enforce the order for your ex to sign up. We have also seen parties block their ex from their phone and emails in an effort to assure they only receive messages from the ProperComm email address and phone number.

9) How much does it cost to use ProperComm?

A Parent is typically required to pay $200.00 at the time of signing up. That payment will provide the Parent with 200 tokens (value $1.00 each), which will be applied to the cost of sending text and email messages (for cost of emails and text messages see Parent “Cost”). Although ProperComm charges a $100.00 administrative fee, if a Parent uses all 200 tokens toward messages, the “fee” is waived. If Parent uses all 200 tokens, additional tokens may be purchased in 5 token increments, starting at $20.00.

However, if a parent is unable to pay $200 at the time, that parent may email ProperComm’s and request to make a smaller payment. 

10) Do I still have to pay if my message does not need to be edited?

Yes, you must pay for all messages unless the Court specifically orders you to sign up as a victim of domestic violence. The Court can also order that one party pays for both users.

11) What do I do if my message does not seem to be sending?

If you are texting, first restart your phone and resend the message. If it does not go through in within 5-10 minutes, you should email If you are emailing, check your outbox, if using your phone, restart the phone and wait 5-10 minutes. If the message has not gone through, contact

12) What if I need to send my ex documents?

ProperComm does not allow attachments at this time. Documents can be sent through the US postal service.
