So, your marriage has reached a point where both you and your partner have decided to stop living together and divorce. And there is nothing too bad in that. Sure, you will feel down after that happens and you will try to get back on track as fast as you can. However, that is not as easy as it may seem at first sight. So, to make everything easier on yourself, try to look for some things that will make you happier. If you are still in the process of divorce, make sure to check out websites like DivorceOnlineUtah, that provide you with the online tools for divorce. You can do everything, from getting your questions answered to divorcing online. However, after you have divorced you will see that you still need some help. Moreover, if you have children, you will realize that there are some things that the tech will help you. However, it may be quite hard to find the fitting app for your case. So, this article is here for you to help with choosing the right apps for you. Here are some of the best.

1. Messengers

These are the apps that we are used to so much nowadays. However, some of the things that we are not aware of are in the most popular ones. For example, you can schedule things with various bots. Apps like Telegram and WhatsApp help you go through the process of scheduling and communication much easier than if you were using email. Moreover, in an email, you should not even expect that you will get an immediate response. Yet, since our phones are always with us and with the ease of the current messengers you can text from anywhere. Another awesome thing that you should use instead of emailing is sending files via the messengers. It will take quite some time for a person to get to their computer to check the file. However, with your phone, you can quickly check what is inside and see if you need to read it at that moment or not. The downside of these programs is the fact that you can write anything that you want. That may lead to some problems between you and your ex-spouse. So, if you are using a messenger, make sure that you are thinking about every word that you write.

2. Our Family Wizard

This is an app that was designed to help divorced parents. It has tons of features that you can easily use without having to look for anything online. Things like a scheduler and a calendar are going to be handy, in case you want to plan something like a meeting with your child. Another cool feature that you may want to try out in Our Family Wizard is the messaging tool. It looks like a normal chat that you would have in some apps. However, it has features like a filter that will show you whether you want to see that message or not. This prevents you from playing the messages in your car when the kids are inside. Also, that lets you not worry about anything when you are at work. To add to that, the app will notify both parents about any scheduled activities.

3. SupportPay

The last app that you will want to take a look at is the SupportPay app. That is a program designed for parents who have to pay child support or alimony. The app comes in handy in those cases when you want to keep track of every bill that you send. Sure, you can try to do that using only the banking app that you use all of the time. However, with this program, it is easier to keep all of the receipts and various payments that you made aside from the needed ones. The great thing about this app is the fact that you do not even need to have both parties to have the program. Only the person paying can have it and it will still work perfectly.
