Using technology to your advantage during and after divorce

Technology is virtually inescapable today, from the computers we use for work to the cellphones we carry with us. Even our homes are strewn with technological devices that dim our lights and lock our doors.

Whether you feel nervous or excited by these advances, the fact is that technology plays a role in nearly every aspect of our lives. This includes family legal issues like divorce. Therefore, it can be helpful to embrace technology so you can use it to your advantage when navigating a family legal matter.

Staying organized

Even the simplest divorce involves paperwork, deadlines and payments. Staying organized can therefore be tricky. However, there are numerous divorce-specific apps that allow you to do things like track payments and send messages.

You can also store your legal documents, like property inventory and parenting plans, in a place that you can access anywhere you have an internet connection.

Communicating respectfully

Emotions often run high during divorce and it is very easy to let them come through in conversations or written messages. Rather than let emotions derail or further complicate a divorce, parties can utilize messaging systems that can flag hostile or threatening tones.

Nearly every messaging program allows parties to retain correspondence, as well. This can make it easier for people to refer back to specific exchanges. These capabilities can help people appreciate the importance of respectful communication.

Co-parenting effectively

Raising a child together but separately presents some logistical challenges for parents. However, technology can help. Parents can share calendars with each other and a child to stay updated. There are some apps that allow families to keep a journal and track important milestones, which can be especially important to parents with babies or young children.

Technology won't eliminate all the challenges of family law disputes or life after divorce, but it can alleviate some of the difficulty and confusion that people often experience.
