How Technology Can Help You During and After Your Divorce

By Nottage and Ward on October 29, 2012

Technology is having an increasingly significant role in people’s lives; there are apps for just about everything now. You can keep a list of every item in your pantry on your phone, create a shopping list, navigate to and from destinations, find movie times, and even do your banking through apps on your cell phone, tablet, or other device. But did you know that there are also apps to help families through their divorce?

According to The Huffington Post, the following apps can be the extra help a divorcing or divorced family needs to cope with the changes in their lives:

  • 2Houses: The purpose of this app is to help make communication easier for divorced parents. Parents can update and edit a shared digital calendar so that neither misses important events like sports games, recitals, graduations, or parent-teacher conferences. It also has a notification feature that lets the other parent know when the calendar has been changed or updated.
  • Divorce Log: This calendar-based app helps divorced couples keep track of their divorce-related responsibilities, such as child support and spousal support payment dates, visitation with children, and expenses. This information can be forwarded to an email address to be easily sent to your ex or attorney, if necessary.
  • iSplit Divorce: Division of marital assets can be tricky in a divorce. This app lets a divorcing couple divide their marital assets by assigning icons to all expensive items, such as cars and even the house. Users input the dollar amount of each to determine each spouse’s assets. The app maintains a running total of each party’s total assets so that you can ensure equitable division. The information can be exported into a spreadsheet to be sent or given to your attorney, financial advisor, or spouse.
  • Child Support Calculator: This app helps divorcing parents figure out the approximate cost of alimony and/or child support payments. You enter the state where you are divorcing, both your incomes, and a percentage to indicate the level of custody you each have and the app gives you an estimate of each party’s financial responsibility.
  • Parenting Apart: Unlike the other apps, this one doesn’t provide a management tool, but is a service that provides advice about general questions related to co-parenting and other related topics.

Five Stars5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
