Using apps to help coparent after a divorce

| Nov 24, 2016 | Child Custody |

If you are a divorcing Georgia parent, have you wondered how you will be able to work with your former spouse to raise you kids not just during your divorce but even once your divorce is finalized? If so, you are not alone. Coparenting after a divorce is not always easy but finding ways to do this is good not just for you but for your kids as well.

The Online Mom indicates that technology may well have some tools to help you out. It is no surprise that communicating with an ex spouse can be a challenge. What should be simple conversations can often escalate into arguments. One person may misunderstand another person’s message and then important events may be missed. Online sites or apps can help address these problems.

Many apps give parents the ability to track all schedules so that there is not even a need to call or text each other about them. Everything from days off of school to band performances can be put onto these calendars. Important health information such as upcoming doctor appointments, illnesses or food allergies can also be recorded so that both parents have access at any time.

Reducing the amount of logistical communication needed between parents can reduce the level of conflict between parents. This helps the entire family work more effectively together. If you would like to learn more about how you can maintain strong involvement in your kids’ lives after a divorce, please feel free to visit the coparenting page of our Georgia family law website.
