Can an app help me co-parent?

If you are one of the many divorced parents in Illinois who struggles with how to track financial expenses related to your kids in conjunction with your former spouse, you know that this is no easy task. Your divorce decree may outline the basic plan and criteria such as which one of you must pay how much in child support and how much each of you must pay toward health insurance or medical costs, but you quickly learn that there are many other things left for you to figure out. Even tracking the items that are clearly defined in your settlement can become complex and open up too many opportunities for conflict between you and your ex.

Fortunately there are many websites and mobile apps available today that give divorced parents the ability to take some of the emotion and complexity out of this money management nightmare. Coparently is one company that offers such a tool in both web and mobile formats.

Basically, these tools allow you to input all payments made and reimbursement items needed into one place and some even allow money to be sent to each other. You can see what expenses have been paid and which ones are still pending and you can identify the contributions of each parent. Messages may be sent and received via the tool as well to further reduce the potential for in-person conflict.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give divorced Illinois residents with minor children an idea of some new ways that they may streamline financial management for kid-related expenses with their former spouse.
