Technology may aid coparenting

It only stands to reason that communication can be a struggle for Connecticut spouses who get divorced. This reality therefore sets up a pretty substantial hurdle for parents who must continue to communicate and work together even once their divorce is over. Even the best of intentions can make it all but impossible to retain civil attitudes when dealing with someone who is associated with so much angst in one's life.

Today's divorced parents, however, can take advantage of technology to help them in their coparenting efforts. Tools like 2 Houses or Our Family Wizard put the power of apps to work for divorced parents and their children. Every app has different features but one of the most common is the ability to use the app as a central repository for information that both parents need access to for their children.

These apps can also be used as vehicles for communicating which only further simplifies life and keeps all child-related information and messages in one place. It can also eliminate the need for parents to communicate live in some situations. This is very beneficial for parents who have difficulty in maintaining positive interactions. Reducing the number of in-person conversations may help to reduce conflict levels overall. This is good for parents and children alike.

Some apps give parents the ability to track and sort financial expenditures related to their kids and even to transfer money to and from the other parent. Food allergies, health issues, school and extracurricular activity schedules and more can all be kept and found in one place.

  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
  • Wendy and her staff were a delight to work with. During this difficult process I felt confident that the outcome would be fair and balanced, as it did. Very supportive, always well prepared and very knowledgeable. Would choose them all over again!
