Uncontested Divorce Apps

Posted By Attorney Jim Cairns || 13-Nov-2012

The evolution of an uncontested divorce in Pennsylvania is quickly growing in areas such as technology. Five years ago an eDivorce was not an option for couples who wanted an uncontested divorce in our state. Other technological options are becoming part of the landscape of uncontested divorces such as social media and divorce apps. If you are from a big city like Philadelphia or a smaller town like Scranton these apps can be helpful in processing your uncontested divorce.

Your first question might be what is an app. An app is an abbreviation for a software application, meaning a special software program. This type of software is normally used for mobile devices, such as a tablet or Smartphone, meaning you don't have to be in front of computer to access the program.

2Houses is an app which has captured a considerable amount of attention. This app allows for both parents to virtually share information. Some of the features that are available through this divorce app are: shared calendars, child's immunization records, expense tool for keeping track of child's expenses, and a journal for sharing information such as parent-teacher conferences. The app is free, this avoids arguing of who is going to pay for it.

There is a free version available called iSplit Lite which has advertisements, unlike the paid version of iSplit.

Some other divorce apps include:

  1. Divorce App – how to help a child/grandchild cope with divorce;

  3. Divorced Rebuild Life – moving on after divorce;
  4. Child Support Calculator – helps calculate monthly child support; and

In the United Kingdom the government has poured 14 million pounds into creating a menu of divorce apps. The apps cover topics such as – how not to fight in front of children and child support payments to help wives who were left for younger women. The government's goal is to make the divorce process less painful and to save money by having individuals resolve some of their own issues, instead of relying on the government.

Keep in mind that the divorce apps should be used as an additional resource for your uncontested divorce and not take the place of a qualified divorce attorney.
