For people in Pennsylvania who get divorced while they have minor children still at home, one of the most angst-filled aspects of the experience is losing some time with their children. Closely aligned with that is the reality that somehow they have to figure out a way to work with their former spouse cooperatively to help raise their children. If you are in this situation you know this is not always an easy task. There is a reason you got divorced, after all, and the thought of working together is often the last thing you might want but you know you have to do it.
The Online Mom suggests that you may well just find the help you need from technology. There are many apps and websites today that are designed specifically to help facilitate positive co-parenting. Some examples include Our Family Wizard, apparently and 2Houses. Each solution offers its own set of features and benefits but in general, the idea is that these tools give you access to shared calendars to make it easier to track activities and make sure both parents are working from the same information.
Many apps also allow you to track finances and even send and receive money. Photo sharing, medical and health information and even school-related information can all be housed in one location for easy access.
This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give divorcing or recently divorced parents in Pennsylvania some ideas of how they may set up positive co-parenting relationships and processes for the good of their children.
