Resolving disputes creatively

Post-divorce scheduling problems? There's an app for that

As noted in a recent New York Times article, divorce “can be a hard and messy business” when kids are involved. Although that is certainly not always the case in New York or elsewhere, marital dissolution often features multiple issues centered on children, most typically considerations related to child custody/visitation and child support.

The Times article cited above profiles a divorced woman who recently quit her job to pursue an entrepreneurial vision aimed at helping divorced parties manage their lives better following a marital breakup.

That vision has resulted in an online product called SupportPay, which Sheri Atwood developed as a comprehensive tool to help divorced persons streamline and keep track of child support payments and other post-divorce matters that preoccupy both custodial and non-custodial parents.

If you’re divorced and with kids, you know well what those “other matters” are. Their details are scrawled on calendars and notes scattered around the house. Who will pick up the kids, and when? What day is payment due for child care? What does next week’s schedule look like?

Atwood’s software attempts to simplify such matters. Her product is presently available as an Android application, and might soon be additionally featured as an Apple app. It is free, but Atwood doesn’t intend for that to be the case forever. In time, SupportPay will likely cost consumers about $20 a month.

The product might be highly welcomed by a number of harried parents hard pressed to keep organized on material aspects relating to their kids’ lives.

Of course, it can’t replace the proven acumen and advocacy of an experienced divorce attorney in the event that a post-divorce modification regarding child support, visitation or other legal matter is required.
