What Are Co-Parenting Apps and Should I Use Them?

Couples going through the legal process of a divorce are forced to undergo a tremendous lifetime adjustment. Change is expected to come in relationships with family members, the manner in which household finances are handled and how children are raised. It goes without saying that the largest lifestyle adjustment comes from couples now having to raise their children in different households. This can be further complicated if the couples are experiencing difficulty communicating during the divorce. Necessary parental tasks such as keeping track of school events, medical appointments, documents and the terms of custody agreements can be daunting in the midst of conflict. Enter co-parenting apps. Essentially, a co-parenting app is a tool that parents are starting to use to assist with keeping all important information in one place and reduce tension.

Below are just a few examples of some of the benefits that co-parenting apps provide.

  1. Centralized Calendar: One of the most helpful features of parenting apps is a central calendar. With this feature parents, guardians, babysitters and nannies can manage appointments, upcoming events, field trips, doctor appointments and other activities on a synced calendar. Parents can request adjustments to the calendar via the application without having to engage in conflict with the other party. Additionally, all parties attempting to schedule an event can see if that date is available.
  2. Document Availability: Many of these applications offer the ability to upload and share documents such as medical records and homework assignments. For instance, parents can use this feature to follow a medical treatment plan or keep track of a school project due date as the child moves from one parent’s house to the other.
  3. Messaging Features: Co-parenting applications can be used to keep track of text messages and other forms of communication related to custody or visitation. Further, a record of these communications can be retrieved from the application and used in court if needed.
