Digital Tools to Use During Your Divorce

Getting a divorce is never easy, but it can become even more complex if you and your soon-to-be-ex have children together. Managing your kids’ sports practices, doctors’ appointments, and trying to remember which day they get out of school early can be difficult when you are co-parenting.

Luckily, the world of technology makes managing your kids’ endeavors with your ex a little easier.

There’s an App for That

In today’s digital age, there is an app for seemingly everything—even managing your kids’ lives throughout (and after) your divorce.

Each family communication app is a little different. Some of the apps are free, and some charge an annual fee.

One popular family communication app features a “ToneMeter,” which monitors swearing as well as highlights words and phrases that are aggressive. This feature allows parents to communicate with civility so that more tension isn’t added to an already difficult situation.

Another popular app allows users to communicate with retired judges, therapists, and attorneys when a mediator is needed. It is common for disputes to be resolved after just a 20-minute session of texting.

A different app sends parents a copy of each event created, edited, or deleted on the calendar. That way, if your ex tries to change the time of your child’s softball practice at the last minute, you’ll have a copy of every version. This feature attempts to bring more civility to couples by holding them accountable for their actions.

Some apps target all families; not just those going through a divorce. These apps typically feature a calendar that may be shared with several people in order to keep everyone on the same page. It is also possible to share lists with people included in the app.

A different sort of app along the same lines allows parents to request money from one another for child-related expenses. In addition, you’re able to make payments to one another through the app. There are also calendar and messaging features available within the app.
