Tampa Divorce

Co-Parenting in the Digital Age

Families today are busier than ever before, and it can be difficult to keep track of the logistics when you and your partner are married. In the aftermath of a divorce, it can seem impossible to manage the kids’ schedules and communicate with everyone on a daily basis. Luckily, many parents today have the opportunity to co-parent in the digital age. As you create your custody and time sharing agreements in Tampa FL, consider incorporating these apps into your co-parenting strategy.


Kidganizer is a family management app that was developed specifically for divorced parents. It helps parents to organize all relevant information — including personal and financial data — into one convenient location that can be accessed by both parents. Both parents will receive alerts regarding upcoming appointments and any necessary reminders. It is a valuable app for any divorced parents, but it can be particularly useful for parents who are struggling to communicate and coordinate schedules in person.


FaceTime is a video messaging app that is available on Apple devices, such as the iPhone or iPad. It’s a great option for divorced parents with young children because it can be accessed via Wi-Fi and is easy for young kids to use. Using FaceTime, parents can video chat with their children and connect with them on a personal level. In addition, it’s a safe messaging app for children as long as the privacy settings are configured correctly. This app provides divorced parents with an easy and convenient way to keep in contact with their kids.

Custody Junction

Custody Junction is an app that allows parents to implement and enact their custody and time sharing agreement. Future visitation schedules as well as child support payments can be scheduled two years in advance. This helps to keep both parents informed and organized as they try to create future plans, such as vacations or holiday celebrations. Information on the app also can be shared with any necessary third party, such as a family lawyer.

Our Family Wizard

The judges in the Tampa Bay area are very fond of ordering parents to communicate through Our Family Wizard.  This app allows you to organize your time sharing schedule.  It also allows you to send invoices for unpaid expenses for the children. This is a comprehensive app that helps you manage all aspects of co-parenting.  It is by far the app that I see ordered the most by judges in Tampa custody cases.

In addition to downloading these apps to your smart phone or tablet, also be sure to connect with your child’s teacher through any classroom apps that they may use. It’s critical that both parents, and any involved step-parents or significant others, are able to communicate and receive information through these educational portals.

The latest digital technology and mobile resources can make it easier and less stressful to co-parent. To learn more about co-parenting in the digital age and to create a custody and time sharing strategy that works for your Tampa FL family, contact our law firm today.
