Resources to help make co-parenting easier

Getting through a divorce is tough enough without having to continually live on the edge emotionally in the aftermath. If children are involved, it is even worse for them and of course, you want to minimize their pain. If you are going through a divorce, the legal team at Sanders Law Firm knows it can be an emotional roller-coaster. We have helped many clients in this situation and we have some ideas that can help you co-parent through the tough times.

Psychology Today notes that there are several online resources, some started by divorcees themselves to help ex-spouses deal with the aftermath. Websites and apps are available to help you and your spouse co-parent in a less conflict-ridden manner, including those below.

Started to ease the conflict around child-support payments, SupportPay.com works like a banking site to manage money and document payments. You can use it with PayPal or your bank account or even to record a written check and you’ll have a certified record that is saved on the site.

If your kids are between ages 2 and 8, consider SesameStreet.org’s “divorce toolkit.” The Muppets help explain the concept of divorce to little ones in a reassuring way on a DVD, and you’ll also receive a storybook, parental guide and access to online Q and A sessions and webinars.

coParenter.com is a website that helps you make schedules to take to the court showing your plans for custody, including parenting time and holiday arrangements. You can make requests and work on agreements with your ex and save both, as well as other messages. You can also involve experts in any discussions if needed.

OurFamilyWizard.com may be the earliest co-parenting site with a few decades under its belt. This site includes a “tone meter” that warns you when you use words that may cause a negative reaction so you can cool off the language before sending a message. It includes a parenting schedule too.

When you have trouble getting along, these and other tools can help both exes accomplish their parenting goals. To find out how Sanders Law Firm can help you further, visit our webpage for divorce services.
