Our Family Wizard

To prevent arguments, you need to know what you told your former spouse, and when. This app allows you to document these exchanges. It also has a feature that helps the two of you manage what expenses are coming up, and what has been taken care of so you can ensure that financial responsibilities are shared according to the custody order. Like many other apps, it also includes a calendar so that the parenting schedule, extracurricular activities, doctor’s appointments and other important dates and times can be shared.

Parenting Apart

This app addresses the mental, emotional and psychological challenges you and your children may face during the divorce process and after. It offers articles and advice on topics such as how to respond to emotional reactions from your children and how to help them heal, as well as coping skills that may help you move on. 

Other apps that also have calendars, expense management tools and communication assistance include Coparently, 2Houses and Custody Connection. While this information may provide you with helpful tools to manage life after divorce, it is for educational purposes only, and should not be interpreted as legal advice.
