Help Communicating with Your Ex After Divorce
As family law attorneys practicing here in Florida, during the month of August, we tend to see divorce filings spike. While divorce can be difficult and overwhelming, there are some new tech -related services that can help in terms of coordinating child issues with your ex and getting connected to helpful resources for divorce proceedings, as we discuss below:
OurFamilyWizard can be used to help parents raising children separately and includes interactive calendars that allow you to track who has the kids on what days, as well as expense logs so that you can keep track of reimbursements, receipts, invoices, and more. The app also allows parents to communicate with each other through a secure message board and even features a “tone meter” option that can help to flag potentially problematic language before it is sent.
coParenter there’s another app designed to help with co-parenting and avoiding conflict while you do it. It allows one parent to send not-trackable notifications to the other parent, for example, when they are picking up or dropping off kids, as well as parents to send requests to each other if certain aspects of the schedule need to be swapped. In addition, if one parent does not want to use the app, it does still allow for the other parent to use the app in “solo mode” while sending messages to the parent who is not participating via a separate SMS phone number.
AppClose is another co-parenting app that allows you to manage schedules and send date- and time-stamped messages such as drop off and pick up requests; the difference being that AppClose is completely free to use.
TalkingParents Records your exchanges with the other parent and is all exchanges are also date and time stamped and in a format that is admissible in court. It also allows you to keep notes that will not be shared with your ex.
Divorce Proceedings Resources and Tracking Alimony & Child Support Payments
Divorceify is designed to help provide people with resources and connections for divorce proceedings, such as matching them with attorneys, mediators, therapists, and other professionals that can help them during the process. SupportPay is oriented towards being able to manage and track alimony and child support payments, and also allows the paying parent to view receipts to see what the child support payments are being spent on.
Mend advertises itself as a “personal coach for the brokenhearted” and is designed to help you get over the end of your relationship. It includes training sessions that titles such as ‘rediscovering yourself after divorce’ and classes on topics like how to manage finances more efficiently after divorce.
