8 smartphone apps that can help with your divorce
These smartphone apps are sure to make your life easier during divorce.

Divorce can be the most challenging time of your life. If you are going through a divorce, you may be dealing with many difficulties relating to the causes of the divorce or the effects of your divorce proceedings. If you are divorcing your partner with which you have children, you may have a difficult time arranging schedules for child custody or visitation.

Like many people today, you likely use smart phone applications to distract you from the stresses of your divorce. While you are scrolling through Facebook or playing the newest version of Candy Crush, did you ever consider how a smart phone application could actually help you organize your life during divorce rather than distract you from it? Actually, there are many mobile applications available today that can help you through these difficult times.

(1) Kidganizer

Managing your divorce or separation while maintaining your kids’ busy schedules can be difficult. The Kidganizer application can help you manage your child(ren)’s schedules and expenses. The app has synchronization technology, which means that when you add a visitation or custody date to your calendar, the other parent will be able to see the date. This can come in handy since communication between former spouses is a difficult task to manage. This can help you avoid the uncomfortable calls, text messages, or emails. Former spouses can manage their child(ren)’s schedules without having to communicate directly with one another.

The expense tracker is also a great tool that can help you manage your child support payments and track the total parenting expenses. The app even allows you to take photos of and archive receipts. The synchronization capabilities allow you to share these with your former spouse quickly and easily.

The Family tab allows you to create profiles for your kids and invite other members of your or your former spouse’s family to view the app.

The application also sends out alerts and notifications of upcoming events. This application is a must have, if you ask us.

As a child from a divorced family, McGhee is very knowledgeable when it comes to advising separated and divorced parents as to how they can improve relations with their child(ren). This app can help advise you on important questions you may not know how to answer for your kids.

This innovative application can help you focus on YOU. With new meditation exercises on the app every month, you will be able to manage stress caused by your difficult divorce.

The app helps users track the value of the assets and keeps a running total of how much each party has gotten in the split.
