Could a co-parenting app help you with custody disputes?

On Behalf of | Sep 16, 2021 | Child Custody

A coparenting app can be a good way to help you stay organized and to avoid custody disputes. These applications may now allow you to communicate in a way that the court has access to. They can also help you with scheduling and other issues that may arise.

A co-parenting app can be a good way to streamline your calendars and schedules. It may also serve as an excellent form of communication when other methods have not worked well for you. Something nice about these apps is that some of them are free. Others have free trial periods, so you can see if they will work well for your situation.

How co-parenting technology helps

Co-parenting technology helps because it keeps all of your coparenting information in one place. You may upload your custody schedule, make adjustments to the calendar for exceptions to the normal custody arrangements and even communicate directly in the app. That way, you’ll have a place to reference if your ex asks to switch a custody day or to pick up your child early for some reason. You’ll also have a place you can put your own requests, so that you can always refer your attorney or a court to those communications in one easy app.

Sometimes, it can feel difficult to stay organized when your child is growing and so much is going on, but when you and your ex-spouse both select a parenting app that you like, you can decide to use that as your primary form of communication and scheduling. Since you’ll both have the same information in front of you, you should be able to reduce conflicts or misunderstandings.

Better yet, if you did have verbal disagreements or issues in the past, the app will make it so that everything is in written form. That way, both of you will be on better behavior and be encouraged to be respectful of each other.

These are a few reasons why you may want to consider using a co-parenting app. The right technology could be helpful as you learn to become a better co-parent.
