We always recommend that correspondence relating to parenting or property settlement matters are recorded in writing either via email or text message.
There are also various parenting communication apps which parties can use to discuss co-parenting matters. Some of the most popular apps include AppClose, 2Houses, Our Family Wizard and WeParent. Co-parenting apps can be an effective tool in reducing the need for legal intervention. The information stored in the apps can also help support legal arguments if necessary for example transcripts of conversations, calendars events and cancellations. Co-parenting apps usually include features such as calendars, tracking child related expenses, medical history and instant messaging.
