With an abundance of technology at our fingertips, it only makes sense to utilize it for co-parenting issues as well, especially during the holidays. It can be difficult to coordinate with your child’s other parent about custody plans during the various family gatherings this season.
However, there is a simple way to manage your child’s schedule with their other parent. Recently, co-parenting apps have become more and more popular in child custody cases. Their ease and accessibility make them a great option for communicating with your ex-spouse regarding your child’s needs.
What is a Co-Parenting App?
Co-parenting apps offers many features that allow parents to manage and organize their parenting responsibilities like pick up and drop off times, school schedules, and other activities that your child participates in. There is a co-parenting app out there for every family depending on their needs. Here are the best apps currently available to make co-parenting easier after a divorce.
Coparently lets you “spend less time managing your child custody schedule and more time with your kids.” This website has a color-coded parenting calendar, a communication center, expense records, and an information bank with important contacts.
Although Coparently is technically not an app, it is available on any mobile browser. A subscription of their services is around $99 a year or $9.99 per month. Each parent that wishes to access the account will need to subscribe.
According to the 2Houses website, more than 9,370 families in 9 countries utilize their services. 2Houses is a mobile app and online communication and organization tool for separated parents.
In addition to their messaging system, separated parents can also share photos of their children, manage expenses, store medical records for their child, and organize their parenting plan.
2Houses costs $149.99 per year or about $12.50 per month. However, unlike other apps, it allows the whole family to use one account.
AppClose is a co-parenting app that states it minimizes conflict while allowing parents to stay organized. It can manage parenting schedules, create pickup and dropoff requests, as well as includes a messenger tool to chat with your child’s other parent. The best part about the app? It offers almost all of the same features as similar apps, but it’s free!
