Top 5 Co-Parenting Apps You Should Download

Divorce isn’t easy, especially when you share custody of your child with your ex. If the end of your relationship didn’t end on the best of terms, it could be hard to even speak with your ex. However, when children are involved, divorced parents will have to find a way to make co-parenting work.

Luckily, we live in an age of technology, and there are now apps available for co-parents to use that include great features like family calendars, schedules, and even communication. Epperson Law Group examined the top 5 best apps you should consider downloading.

WeParent

The WeParent app claims to make co-parenting simpler by taking “the pain out of coordination and communication between co-parents.” The app allows co-parents to do a few things like make custody schedules, share relevant documents, track expenses, and message each other.

Cost and Availability: The app is available on both Android and iOS. It is free to try for 14 days and only $2.99 per month afterward.

OurFamilyWizard

The OurFamilyWizard app is the “best co-parenting app for staying focused on the kids, not conflict.” Features include a calendar, message board, expense log, journal, and an info bank. Additionally, parents can add third parties like grandparents, mediators, or therapists to the account.

Cost and Availability: OurFamilyWizard offers different subscription plans and features starting at $99 for one year with a 30-day money-back guarantee. There is also a fee waiver program and military family discount for those who qualify. The mobile app is free to install on Android and iOS.

AppClose

AppClose is the “#1 FREE Co-Parenting App.” It offers many of the same features as similar co-parenting apps like a shared calendar, records, the ability to add third parties, and a messenger. Additionally, you can add requests from the other parent in the app.

Cost and Availability: Free for both Android and iOS users.

Coparently

Coparently has “everything you need to raise healthy, happy kids after separation or divorce.” The app features a color-coded custody calendar, co-parent communication center, co-parent expense record, and a shared list of essential contacts. Parents can also grant access to other guests.

Cost and Availability: Coparently is $99 per year or $9.99 per month per parent, but is available to try for free for 30 days. There is not an actual app, but can be accessed from any mobile browser.

2Houses

2Houses allows ”separated parents to communicate and become organized for the well-being of their children,” and is currently used by more than 159,953 families in 163 countries. Parents can share photos, easily organize their custody schedule, manage expenses, communicate, and share important information like the child’s medical records.

Cost and Availability: After a 14-day trial, parents can expect to pay about $12.50 a month with an annual payment for the app, and it is available on both Android and iOS.
