Co-parenting Apps

A co-parenting app is designed to simplify life for separated or divorced parents by helping them manage the day-to-day shared responsibility of raising their children.

Many separated parents find that using a co-parenting app can empower them to create a smooth and organised co-parenting experience, giving their children a happier and more stable environment.


When do I need a co-parenting app?

You might consider using a co-parenting app in several situations:

Busy or dynamic schedules Do you and your ex struggle to keep track of multiple child schedules, appointments, and birthdays? Perhaps you have a flexible approach to shared care that is not always regular week to week. A co-parenting app can streamline your calendars and avoid confusion.

Desire for improved communication Even if co-parenting is relatively amicable, a co-parenting app can still be beneficial. These apps offer features to streamline communication and keep everything organised and in one place.

Long-distance co-parenting Do you live far from your co-parent? A co-parenting app can help bridge the physical distance by providing a central location to share information and communicate.

Reducing co-parent conflict If you are looking to improve communication with your ex-partner for the benefit of your children, or if your relationship is strained or argumentative, a co-parenting app can provide a neutral platform. Some have tools designed to help you both communicate better. It can also benefit privacy if you want to remove or block your former partner from other contact methods.

Court-ordered agreements If you have a court-ordered custody agreement, some co-parenting apps can help you track and document adherence.

Ultimately, co-parenting apps are tools that help make co-parenting smoother and more efficient. If you would like to improve communication, organisation, or any other aspect of co-parenting, then a co-parenting app might be a good solution for you.

What are the benefits of using a co-parenting app?

Prioritise clear communication Ensure your children’s needs are always met by keeping communication open and transparent with your co-parent. Co-parenting apps provide a safe and documented platform for all discussions.

Simplify co-parenting challenges Juggling schedules, expenses, and information sharing can be overwhelming, even before separation. Using a custom app streamlines your calendars, keeps track of finances, and stores important documents in one place.

Reduce conflict and increase cooperation Co-parenting apps help avoid misunderstandings and disagreements by providing a clear and organised system for managing co-parenting responsibilities.

Provide stability in a time of upheaval Using all the features of a co-parenting app can create a consistent and organised routine for your children, even amidst a family transition and show your kids you’re committed to working together for their wellbeing.

Peace of mind for co-parents An app designed to take the guesswork out of co-parenting allows you to focus on what truly matters—spending quality time with your children. This reduces stress and creates a more positive co-parenting dynamic.

What kind of features can I expect in my co-parenting apps?

Shared calendar This allows parents to easily view and manage their custody schedule, including regular exchanges and appointments for the children.

Secure messaging Co-parents can communicate with each other through the app, ensuring all messages are documented and time-stamped. Some apps offer privacy features like video calling without revealing phone numbers.

Document storage Important documents related to custody agreements, medical records, and school information can be stored securely in one place accessible to both parents.

Expense tracking This helps parents track shared expenses related to the children, such as childcare, medical bills, and extracurricular activities. Some apps allow for secure payment requests and transfers within the app.

“Is amicable secure?” Absolutely. amicable prioritises your child’s privacy. All data and conversations are stored securely, with pin-protected access limited to authorised parents.

Messages are time-stamped and can’t be deleted, promoting clear and accountable communication.

“Is there a free option?” amicable offers a generous two-month free trial to The Separation Guide customers (normally one month). Experience the app’s benefits risk-free, and cancel anytime if you’re not satisfied.
