Helping Divorced or Unmarried Co-Parents Communicate
Parents who struggle with keeping up with their visitation schedule and issues communicating with their ex can benefit from using apps for custody communication that are designed to make co-parenting easier. While there are some tremendously helpful family schedule apps out there, the following list focuses on apps for custody communication and co-parenting specifically.
Here are some of the best co-parent apps you can download to improve your co-parenting relationship after your divorce.
If you and your ex struggle with time management, WeParent is a great co-parenting app that is designed for divorced and separated parents. This app allows you to manage your custody and visitation schedule, make appointments, send group messages to your private family groups, make lists to share, and more.
Cost: FREE 14-Day Trial. After the trial, you have three payment options: $9.99/month, $99.99/year, or $199.99/lifetime.
2. Our Family Wizard
Our Family Wizard is one of the most popular apps for co-parents. It was created by a divorced couple who, like some co-parents, needed a better way to communicate with each other. You and your ex can benefit from this app in many ways, but one of the coolest things about this app is that information stored in your app can be used in court.
This app keeps a log of communication, allows you to share information, keeps track of parenting time, etc. Unlike the other apps mentioned on this list, Our Family Wizard is a paid app; however, this app has an abundance of valuable tools that are well worth the cost.
Cost: $12-$17/month billed annually. There is also an option to create your own custom plan - pricing varies.
The Coparently app is a one-stop shop for everything from expense management to in-app communication tools, and a color-coded calendar to note important events your ex-partner or ex-spouse may need to be aware of with regard to your children. There is even a shared directory within the app to make it easier for both parents to be able to easily access essential contacts such as doctors, teachers, daycare, etc.
Cost: You can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial. $99/year per parent or $9.99/month following the trial's end.
If you’re looking for an app that makes it easy to create and share calendars with your ex and other family members, Co-Parenter would possibly be a good fit for you. This app has a cool feature where you can print out your calendar as a PDF, so you and your ex can have a physical copy of your visitation schedule.
Cost: $12.99/mo or $119/year
Although this app wasn’t made explicitly for co-parenting, Cozi has become a popular app for parents. Cozi is a free co-parenting app you can use to make a calendar that you and your ex can use to schedule a visitation create to-do lists, share pictures of your kids, and more.
