Onward enables you to split each expense with your co-parent without having to rely on unnecessary and emotionally-charged text conversations. You can now propose how you would like to split a particular expense, share the details with your co-parent, and settle up directly in the app once you hook up your bank account or via our connections to apps such as Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, or CashApp.
Onward lets you keep track of:
- What you've spent
- What they've spent
- How much is owed by each parent
- Settling up on expenses
We understand that co-parenting can be difficult, so we’ve created a one-stop child expense tracker to make things easier. With Onward, you can now avoid awkward text messages about money and easily add expenses, share them, and pay your co-parent back right from within the app!
Onward also helps you and your co-parent see what you are spending on your children to help you improve transparency and better plan for your children’s future. That means you can ditch the messy budgeting and expense spreadsheets!
We are on a mission to improve the lives of co-parents and help them build happier homes for their children.

The app helps you streamline your shared parenting and finances in order to make these decisions easier for both of you.

Ratings and Reviews
As a single parent I am very appreciative that this app is FREE and so user friendly. The simpler the better. Still trying to get my ex to hop on the app but I did some research on other apps and this one seems to be the simplest to use. Being a single parent is already stressful enough. I don’t need to add how to figure out a co parenting app to the mix. This makes it easy. I like that the app is finance forward. A calendar where shared time can be displayed would be a plus but ultimately the most difficult part about Co parenting is getting the finances right. This is just easy. All I need is a place where my ex and I can visually see expenses and pay expenses clearly. This app is it. I was struggling with spreadsheets before I found this app. I’m grateful and I’m looking forward to see how this app develops.
This app is exactly what we needed!
I was looking for an app that was reliable, intuitive, and easy to implement. Many times apps go overboard with the bells and whistles and it only complicates the process. This has the perfect balance.
It's a must have app and makes uploading receipts or expenses, identifying the expense, and splitting costs anxiety free! There are a few reports that I will look at from time to time, but it's a Birdseye view of how the funds are being spent and another available tool.
Everything is in one place! I'm not always the most organized so knowing that I can rely on reviewing past history of what has been paid, charged or reviewing reports gives me peace of mind. Don't walk to the app-run!!
This app has made all the difference with our coparenting expenses! It’s all there for each to see what’s been paid and outstanding. I love that we can label them for specific kids and categories. I especially appreciate it’s linked with Venmo so when it’s paid it shows paid in Onward. Only addition I’d like to see added is reoccurring expense options. All in all I recommend this app!
