Modern technology always comes with its share of ups and downs, frustrations, and learning experiences. Not unlike the divorce process! If you are like most people this day and age and have a smartphone, you already have the world at your fingertips. However, did you know that there are many divorce apps out there created to make your life easier?
Below is merely a small sample of the divorce apps that are available. Although our office is not affiliated with and is not endorsing any app in particular, we think it is important for people going through divorce to know that there are many options out there for them.
Support Pay. This app was designed by a single mother to better manage child support. The site states: “Eliminate child support conflict and enjoy transparency while saving time and money. Spend less time managing child support and more time raising happy, healthy children.” The app also helps with other expenses such as: healthcare costs, spousal support, and alimony.
2Houses. This app is based out of Belgium and helps people who are co-parenting to stay organized with calendar sharing and expense tracking. If you have children with busy school and activities schedules this can be especially helpful. The app also offers photo sharing, allows you to create tasks, and has a journal so that you can share information about your child with your ex.
SquareHub. This app was created by Dave Cotter (formerly of Amazon and Oracle). Stemming from his own divorced family experience, Dave wanted an app that connected families by simplifying calendar sharing, planned vacations, the children’s sports, activities, etc. Added bonus for parents: there is a “check-in” location feature that lets you know your child is safe.
CustodyJunction. This is a website that allows parents to schedule current and future visitation arrangements up to two years in advance. This site can be extremely helpful in planning activities, holidays, and vacations. Customized reports can be created for visitation, support payments, expenses, and hours spent with child. They can also be shared with third parties such as lawyers or court monitors.
Divorce is difficult on its own so why not access resources that can help make things a little bit easier for you and the rest of the family? If you feel that your divorced family could use a little help communicating and staying organized, don’t be afraid to check out one of the co-parenting or divorced couple apps that are available.
