Making divorce and child custody easier: There are Apps that can help.

It seems that we often start our posts on family law topics with an obvious truth – divorce is never easy, and it is even harder when children are involved.

The good news is that in our technologically reliant society – there are now a number of Apps available in the App Store and Google Play that can help both during and after the divorce is final.  As the Wall Street Journal has pointed out, the purpose of many of these Apps is to make the process simpler.  Many of the options include shared calendars so that all sides can be aware of what is going on, who is responsible for what and for a streamlined communication process that focuses on the task at hand.
